/ Great News For Thurcroft
01 Mar 2012
The announcement this week that Thurcroft is to receive £1 million from the Big Lottery Fund’s Big Local scheme is great news for local residents.
When I met with representatives from the Big Lottery Fund last year they told me about the new scheme and I suggested to them that the village would benefit from any such support.
The funding, which will be available over the next decade, will give residents the chance to spend it on anything from creating new community facilities to starting up training and employment schemes, tackling anti-social behaviour, or providing more activities for young people.
The Big Local scheme is being managed by Local Trust, a recently established, independent organisation set up by the Community Development Foundation and its consortium partners. They will work in close consultation with residents to support them and offer guidance on their plans.
