Just to let residents know the outcome of the Holyrood Ward Community Grants programme for 2019-20.
All Councillors in Bury are given a small budget to help with community projects in their area. Here in Holyrood Ward, we pooled all our budgets together to create a ‘Holyrood Ward Community Fund’ and asked you to apply last autumn.
Thank you to everyone who applied. Sadly we couldn’t help everyone who applied. We will (hopefully) get another allocation from May this year, and we will let you know about the allocation process for that.
The 2019-20 grants are:
Clean Team Prestwich (new litter bins) £400.
Meet and Chat (for vulnerable people) £200.
Prestwich Plodders (womens running group) £200.
Action for Baguley Crescent £300.
