Mablethorpe has a brand new community notice board on the corner of the High Street and Station Road, funded by the Coastal Community Challenge on behalf of Big Local.
The positioning of the notice board was determined prior to the placing of the ‘In Bloom’ boat, but assurances were sought as the boat was only temporary during the summer months.
This open notice board can be used by anyone to advertise community and charity events within the LN12 area. Many thanks go to all those involved in seeing the project come to life.
The CCC committee would like to thank the town council, town clerk and assistant to the town clerk for their support in obtaining the planning permission and also John Monk for the installation.
The positioning of the notice board was determined prior to the placing of the “In Bloom” boat, but assurances were sought, and given that the boat was only temporary and would be removed at the end of summer.
For the past two years the CCC have demonstrated that they are competent to manage the £1million, the budget for which is currently being finalised prior to its release.
Several small grants have already been paid out from a sum of £6,000 released by Big Local. These grants have been administered by the Lincolnshire Community Foundation, who are the trusted organisation who will oversee the spending of the £1million.
The CCC were very pleased to be able to provide the notice board, which follows on from another successful CCC achievement of providing a free day out and free transport for all residents of the LN12 area at the seal sanctuary in September.
This event was very well attended, with free face painting for the children, along with other free activities.
Thanks must go to Lynne lamb for giving her time to organise this.
