May 11, 2012 in Exwick
In 2011 all of Devon’s County Councillors were given an equal one off share of the remaining capital funding from the sale of Exeter Airport to use in their local areas in addition to the normal annual allocation of community funding. Exwick’s County Councillor Rob Hannaford has been working closely with the local Exwick Labour team Cllr Ollie Pearson, Cllr Rachel Sutton and Cllr Phil Bialyk to ensure that the funds are put to good long term uses. As usual in the new financial year £10,000 will be again allocated to Cllr Rob Hannaford for local community projects so please come forward with your ideas and suggestions to help improve Exwick.
So far the following grants have been made and we will update you about the remaining grants shortly.
Exeter Scouts – £1,000 towards an £18,000 refurbishment and redevelopment of the Exeter Scouts HQ at Ashton Road Marsh Barton , to support the work of the 936 local members, that includes over 700 children and young people in and around Exeter.
AGE UK – £4,000 towards the new expanded centre on Cowick Street to maintain and increase the important work already being done for local people.
Bowhill School – £2,950 granted for new multi purpose climbing frame and new play area.
Emmanuel Church – £2,000 to help repair roof area near the community centre entrance to ensure that the nursery and outdoor areas are kept safe and in use.
