Cash still available

AN event aimed at increasing awareness of lottery grants available to community projects in South Holland attracted representatives from 42 organisations.

The event, held at Gedney Victory Hall, was organised due to low rates of applications to the BIG Lottery and Heritage Lottery Fund.

Karen Johnson, South Holland District Council community development officer, said: “It is important that community groups know that funding is still available for them.”

Delegates from community groups, sports clubs, parish councils and village hall committees attended the event.
