Leisure and community grants awarded

07th December 2010

Nearly £7,000 was donated to local community groups in the latest round of grants at Three Rivers District Council’s Executive Committee on Monday 6 December. 

South-West Herts Community Transport Scheme (Roundabout) who supplies mini buses to community groups in south-west Herts received a £2000 grant. The grant will be used to assist with the rental expenses of their new office at Coach House, Bury Lane.  

£4,980 was given to the Croxley Green branch of the British Red Cross to purchase 24 self propelling wheelchairs, seven elevated leg rests, eight high backed chairs and six commodes. This will allow the branch to meet growing demand for supplies and allocate items for short term loans of up to 12 weeks.
