South Norfolk Councillors have given local projects just under £20,000 through their ward grants, funding a wide range of activities that support the community.
Each of the district’s 45 Councillors has £1,000 of ward funding which they can give to local groups, charities and projects to benefit local people.
Councillor for Central Wymondham, Kevin Hurn, gave £250 of his ward funding to the Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper. They used the money to purchase five memory stick players, allowing more people to subscribe to the Talking Newspaper’s fortnightly news, information digest and quarterly magazine.
Cllr Hurn said: “The new equipment will help those with impaired vision to keep up with local news and events, and to feel a greater part of community life. The project will also enable more volunteers to contribute to the service by producing recordings and working in the studio.”
