Nottinghamshire’s Local Communities Fund

Active Notts, Funding

Five groups are to share £45,387 of Nottinghamshire’s Local Communities Fund (LCF) capital grants. They are:
  • East Side Methodist Church, Hucknall – £9,500 – to contribute towards the installation and purchase of units, under counter fridge/freezer, tiling and storage units as part of a project to provide replacement kitchen and storage facilities to support a long-established youth group and community drop-in at the church.
  • Edwinstowe Parish Council – £20,000 – to concrete the wooden section of the village skate park;
  • Halam Parish Council – £5,787 – to cover the costs of the artwork and installation of two new gateway signs for the village.
  • St Peter’s Church Centre, Mansfield – £5,000 – for the partial renovation of a room – including floor repairs, decorating the walls and ceiling and adding new curtains – and stairs to improve access and usage.
  • Tollerton Parish Council – £5,100 – to go towards providing a new Portakabin to be used as a new community storage and changing facilities for the village’s sports clubs at Tollerton Open Space.
An additional £6,000 has been earmarked for four groups which have applied for a small revenue grant (£5,000 or less). They are:
  • Clipstone Miners’ Welfare Community Trust – £1,500 – to put towards the costs of volunteer expenses and day trips as part of an initiative to provide safe activities for local young people.
  • Now Church, Langold – £1,500 – to contribute towards the costs of volunteer expenses who will help to provide safe activities, such as a drop-in café and access to regular events, for young people.
  • Watersafe UK Search and Rescue, Redhill Marina, Ratcliffe on Soar – £1,500 – to put towards the cost of volunteer expenses for the group’s flood rescue and missing person search service.
  • Young Lions Cricket Club, West Bridgford – £1,500 – to help with the delivery of a project which aims to provide assurance and support to the local community as part of the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The latest round of LCF funding means the county council has delivered £1.6 million in capital and revenue grants to community groups and charities since the scheme was rolled out nearly a year ago.
