Following another successful GFest, held in the summer of 2019, the GFest Committee have allocated £ 3442 from profits raised that local groups/organisations may apply for a share of. If you are a part of a local group that is fund raising for something that is of benefit to group members or to local people, and you would like to apply for some financial assistance, please contact the parish office on 01785 855685 or email firstname.lastname@example.org after 6th January 2020. Closing date for applications is 14th February 2020.
Over the past 12 months, funds have been being raised for this project. At the latter end of 2019 £750 was received from Staffordshire County Council’s People Helping People Fund, in January £1000 was received from Veolia Community Fund and a further £1000 from Gnosall United Charities. The Council is now in a position to make a start on this project. A designated area at the rear of the Grosvenor Centre for those suffering with dementia will be built. The project will include the creation of large raised flower beds, wheelchair friendly pathways and seating areas. The garden will be close to the library and therefore users of the library can also benefit from the garden area. It is also close to GG’s Youth Club and youth club members have already expressed an interest in helping with this project. If anyone would like to be involved with this project, please get in touch with the parish office.
