Residents can bid for funding

Have your say

WOMBWELL residents can help make sure community cash benefits the area.

Volunteers with a little time to spare are needed to join a local panel which agrees top priorities for Wombwell, one of 10 areas in Barnsley to be given Community First funding from the Government.

The money supports community groups that make a difference in their area.

Members of the panel, which includes two residents and three councillors, promote the scheme and meet every few months to consider funding applications.

The panel is searching for more residents to make sure funding benefits the whole of Wombwell.
