Raft of North Lincolnshire community projects set to share £200,000

A host of community groups and charities from across North Lincolnshire are set to share more than £200,000 to kickstart a range of projects.

Local community litter picking groups will get new equipment to continue to keep communities clean while an additional £40,000 has been awarded for more bins in communities across the area.

Projects also include CCTV enhancements for parish councils, cash to develop the Scunthorpe Steelworks Rail Tours, money for the development of a multi-use games area in Broughton and almost £10,000 for the redevelopment of the neighbouring sports centre.

Some of the cash will be used to develop a soft play unit at St John’s Market, a community charity which provides upcycled sports equipment will get £5,000 and the organisers of the area’s first Pride event are set for a £2,500 cash boost to get the party started.

And Baysgarth House Museum will benefit from a development programme while Keadby Community Centre is set for a £25,000 cash boost along with many other projects.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This is levelling up in action here in North Lincolnshire – Government cash is being used to directly support our many communities to develop, to grow and to flourish.

“This cash is on top of a great deal more which is being used to create a new, different future for the residents who live here and for those who visit.

“Communities in Ashby, Barton, Brigg, the Isle and Scunthorpe will all benefit with a range of projects having been backed with hard cash, ensuring they can get off the ground and that people will be able to get involved.

“This latest cash injection gives local organisations, local groups and local residents a fantastic opportunity to directly shape a new, exciting future for North Lincolnshire.”
