Cash grants for Wombwell

FUNDING for community group schemes within the Wombwell area is still up for grabs.

Around £9,000 is still available to be split in to cash grants and allocated by the Wombwell Community First Panel.

There is a deadline of February 28 for all applications that must come from a community or voluntary group.

Projects that have already received help this way include work by the family history group, which was able to purchase IT equipment to help further research.

Wombwell is one of ten areas in Barnsley that has recently been granted Community First funding from the Government to support groups who believe they can make a real difference to their area.
