Leader visits community shop awarded £50,000

Surrey County Council leader David Hodge has visited a community-run shop at Strood Green after it won £50,000 from a fund he created.

Mr Hodge and Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games Helyn Clack visited The Shop to find out more about how the money will be spent.

The shop was one of 17 schemes announced as the first to get a share of the £750,000 Community Improvements Fund set up by Mr Hodge to support projects that make a difference in local areas.

The Community Improvement Fund is part of Surrey County Council’s Love Where You Live campaign which is encouraging residents to volunteer and play a more active role to improve their communities, as well as putting them at the heart of council decision making.

The campaign also aims to help people find out about funding opportunities, such as the Community Improvement Fund. The campaign is at the core of the county council’s new agenda to get everyone working together as one team for the benefit of Surrey.
