Have your say

TWENTY five projects to help community groups and young people have received grants totalling almost £5,000.

Berneslai Homes has allocated the funding to projects which bid for money from its Young Persons Funding Pot and 4U Berneslai Community Grant scheme.

Some 57 groups applied to the young persons’ pot and the 10 which were successful included sports, social and theatre clubs, and schools.

Meanwhile, 15 of 70 projects which applied for 4U grants were successful.

The applicants receiving grants range from a bowling club to community associations, a parent support group and a project helping homeless soldiers.

Funding allocations from the two schemes varied between £50 and £300.
