The first £20,000 of the UK Coal Minorca Community Fund has been allocated to a number of applications for community projects in the three Parish Councils of Swepstone-Newton Burgoland, Measham and Snarestone.
All the applications have been vetted by the Fund Committee and those successful have been deemed the most beneficial to the communities.
The £6000 grant from the Community Fund is towards installing mains water to the Church.
Other recent awards from the Minorca fund are £1500 towards installation of mains water at Snarestone Parish Pavilion and £1500 to the Friends of St Charles School towards their outdoor “Growing School Project”.
Over the balance of the Minorca development further monies will be made available to the fund to a total of £150,000 so many more worthy projects are anticipated to benefit.
