Community Grants 
Thanks to everyone who got involved in our community grants programme this summer. We have had lots of great conversations with residents and organisations about community projects.

Our panel of residents met this month to decide on which projects to fund from the 20 applications received - they were really impressed with the range of creative and engaging projects.

We are contacting applicants now, and look forward to sharing details of the funded projects with you. Over the coming months you will start to see the new activities beginning in our area - let us know what you think!

If you have any queries or feedback, please contact our Community Engagement Manager, Claire Meade,

Youth activities programme on the Grange Estate

We are planning our festival for Sunday 6th October this year - check out our website for information about how to get involved.
