All three Leadgate based projects received Area Action Partnership funding at the It's UP2U event in Consett today.
The Watling Wood bid was successful and received £2923.50. This will enable conservation work to be carried out and facilitate community involvement.
Leadgate Carers got the £500 that they bid for. The work that the group does is really worthwhile; providing a break for those who care for others full time.
Leadgate Newsletter got £750 of the £1200 requested, this is a good result. The newsletter is a vital source of information, especially for those without the Internet at home.
