Groups receive cash for projects of lasting benefit to communities

A garden play area, a minibus and a community cafe are among the latest projects to win cash from a fund to help people improve their local area.

They were among 23 projects to be awarded money from Surrey County Council’s Community Improvements Fund.

Leader David Hodge launched the initiative three years ago to give local groups the chance to get schemes off the ground which promise to provide lasting improvements.

Schemes that have previously secured funding include a youth cafe, an outdoor gym and a village hall.

The Surrey leader said: “While our budgets are under pressure, we have a responsibility for ensuring Surrey’s future prosperity and these projects are all great examples of the council and residents joining together to provide lasting benefits for local people.

“Schemes that have already been helped are now enhancing communities throughout the county and the latest groups to secure money will undoubtedly make an equally positive contribution to their neighbourhoods.”

The full list of projects and the amounts they were awarded can be found here.
