Projects prosper as grants awarded

FOOTBALL clubs, schools, a rescue team and a community centre are all set to benefit from a cash boost.

Cumbria County Council’s local committee for Barrow has given the go-ahead to allocate money from the local revenue scheme.

A new barrier is set to be installed at Vickerstown CCFC thanks to a £2,400 donation and £1,000 has been awarded to the Walney Wind Cheetahs running group.

The committee also gave £600 towards installing a street light on the alleyway between Dalton railway station and Hollygate Road.

Lindal and Marton School gymnastics club was given £560 to buy 20 new tracksuits, £200 will pay for re-pointing paving stones around the Jubilee fountain in Askam and £500 will allow Duddon Inshore Rescue to buy new equipment.

Chapel Street Infants School received £1,642 while £4,000 went towards new central heating at Griffin Community Centre and £200 was given to Ormsgill Nursery and Primary School.

Barrow Wanderers FC were awarded £1,000 for a children’s Christmas party and £700 was allocated for new car park signs at Roa Island.

Councillor Ray Guselli, chairman of the committee said: “The money we’re giving is aimed at helping these local schemes and groups to continue making a positive difference to the lives of people right across Barrow.

“We are delighted to be able to support these schemes and look forward to seeing them come to fruition.”
