Councillor shares the wealth to do his bit for the Big Society

CHRISTMAS cash has been given to local villages.

Coun Robert Palmer awarded seven grants of £250 to the parishes of Grainthorpe, North Somercotes, South Somercotes, Skidbrooke with Saltfleet Haven, Theddlethorpe and Saltfleetby, to make improvements in the villages.

A grant of £250 was also awarded to the Birkbeck College in North Somercotes to help the school to fund a visit from the Young Americans group of performers from the US, who engage pupils in singing, dance and drama.

The grants are from the Lincolnshire County Council Councillor Big Society Fund.
