Councillors handing out our money

Herne Bay councillors could give away the rest of their community budget at next week’s meeting

Councillors could allocate the rest of their budget for community projects at their next meeting. Members of Herne Bay Area Panel will discuss two applications for their opportunities fund at their meeting on Tuesday. If both are approved, it will take up the remaining £8,000 and leave no cash spare until April next year.

The schemes under consideration are allotments for Broomfield,
from Herne and Broomfield Parish Council, and promotion for the Duchamps
festival this summer, from Bayguide Community Interest Company.

The panel has already given Herne and Broomfield Parish Council
£1,200 for mural painting on the Mill Lane underpass, and £186 to Herne
Bay Historical Records Society for commemorative medallions for
schoolchildren.

An application from the BayPromoTeam for money to fund workshops for children and other free events was refused.

Councillors will make the decision at their next meeting, at
6.30pm on Tuesday, 21st May in the Salvation Army Hall in Richmond Street.
It is open to the public.
