All local councillors in Bury receive a small budget to spend in their local areas. In Holyrood Ward we combine ours together to create a Holyrood Ward Community Fund and give 100% to local groups and projects who apply.
Applications were sought last Autumn, and our final list of grants for the 2020-21 year is:
Simister Village Community Association – £600 for a new village notice board.
Prestwich Business Group – £300 to promote local business
Walk Ride Prestwich and Whitefield – £200 – for a campaign to promote more walking and cycling
Simister Allotment Association – £400 for repairs to fencing
Langley Alllotments Association – £400 – towards a new gate
Bailey Street Bowling Club – £259 – new benches
Lady Wilton Hall – £408 – roof repairs
