Group backed by county coun­cil­lor

Aldershot News & Mail - - NEWS -

A FARN­BOR­OUGH or­gan­i­sa­tion has been awarded £1,000 ad­di­tional fund­ing.

The May­field Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship (MCP), a group that works to pro­vide so­cial co­he­sion within the Cher­ry­wood ward, re­ceived the fund­ing from Roz Chadd, Hamp­shire County Coun­cil­lor for Farn­bor­ough North.

Each county coun­cil­lor has a bud­get of £8,000 to spend on lo­cal projects or ini­tia­tives in their elec­toral divi­sion, of which po­ten­tial groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions can ap­ply for fund­ing.

The grant can be used for one-off or mi­nor cap­i­tal projects, that will ben­e­fit the wider com­mu­nity.

Sue Hath­away, of Rush­moor Vol­un­tary Ser­vices who helps co­or­di­nate the MCP, said: “The money will help us to con­tinue to or­gan­ise pos­i­tive events in Cher­ry­wood.”

The MCP, which is run by res­i­dents, is one of the long­est run­ning com­mu­nity groups in the bor­ough and is sup­ported by Rush­moor Bor­ough Coun­cil, Hamp­shire Po­lice and many lo­cal schools.
