Residents urged to have their on community life in Goldthorpe

Have your say

Goldthorpe residents are invited to have their say on the future of their community.

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust wants residents to have their say after launching its Community Trainer Micro-Grant Scheme, which encourages local groups to apply for a share of £5,000.

The funds will be divided between a minimum of 10 successful applicants to address the main concerns for Goldthorpe and develop community programmes to encourage residents to play a part in improving the area.

Locals are invited to apply for a seat on a panel to share their thoughts and identify the main concerns facing residents.

The panel will then allocate up to up to £500 to each group that can showcase how they would address community problems.

Gemma Cobby, Community Trainer for Goldthorpe, said: “The micro-grant scheme provides the perfect opportunity for local residents to voice their concerns about the area that they live in and input into where funding can be spent to make a positive and lasting impact on the community.”

The deadline for panel applications is 4pm on Friday, October 2.
