£4,156 grant helps Louth Royal British Legion toilets project


Louth Royal British Legion has been able to refurbish toilet facilities at its Northgate hall thanks to a grant from East Lindsey District Council.

The project cost £15,000 which was boosted by the community grant of £4,156.

Branch President Gus Robertson said: “It is a very old building and the toilets were getting very old too. The money has made a big difference in rejuvenating the toilets and brightening them up.”

A plaque recognising ELDC’s funding was presented to RBL members by Council Chairman Coun Pauline Watson. Coun Sandra Harrison, Portfolio Holder for Communities, said: “The Community Grant Scheme aims to give a much needed boost to projects such as this and can act as a catalyst to attract further external funding.”

Through the Community Grants Scheme, grants of up to £8,000 can be awarded to formally governed, not for profit organisations and Town and Parish Councils towards community projects which will benefit the residents of East Lindsey.

More information about the Community Grant Scheme can be found at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/communitygrants under the Community section.

Applications for the next round of funding will be accepted from March 2014 subject to budget approval.
