Don't miss out on community cash, MP urges
Posted on February 17, 2008
Community groups in South Beds have been urged not to miss out on valuable funding by MP Andrew Selous.
He has called on groups in need of cash - including Houghton Regis Bowls Club, which is hoping to upgrade its changing facilities - to make sure they apply for grants from WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd).
The company is responsible for distributing money for good causes, and in the past three years has awarded more than £250,000 to groups in the district.
But Mr Selous said that the rest of Bedfordshire is faring far better, with more than £3.44 million paid out across the county in the same period.
The Tory MP said: "It would be very good to see South West Bedfordshire receive an equal proportion of the funding provided among the six Bedfordshire constituencies."
WREN's contact details are: WREN House, Manor Farm, Bridgham, Norfolk, NR16 2RX. Interested groups can also phone 01953 717165, or email [email protected] for more information.
