£4,000 for community groups

Kevin Snow02nd December 2008

Vulnerable residents will benefit from an extended service from community group, Roundabout Transport.  A grant of £3,000 was awarded by Executive Commitee on 1 December to enable the service to meet the increasing travel needs of community organisations. Roundabout operates across Three Rivers and will now be able to consider providing additional transport for the Rickmansworth area.

A smaller grant was awarded to Putting It Together Productions. Funding of £1,000 will enable the project to produce a live music event, working with local music groups and young people. As well as providing a fun event, the project aims to encourage young people to continue their involvement in local arts projects once the performance is over.
