Delighted to see that substantial funding has been awarded to various sports clubs, community organisations and local groups across the constituency under the Community Recognition Fund. Through this funding initiative, groups will be able to develop local amenities, fund sports and outdoor equipment and transport infrastructure.
Congratulations to all the successful groups. Looking forward to seeing the positive impact this funding will have in helping them to continue to do the fantastic work they do!
