Parish awarded grant for Bells Hill rec.

The Veolia Environmental Trust today released the following announcement:

A project to provide people living in and around Stoke Poges with a great new all-weather multi-use games area (MUGA) has received a funding boost from The Veolia Environmental Trust.

We have awarded Stoke Poges Parish Council a grant of £39,000 through the Landfill Communities Fund towards the installation of the MUGA. The fenced sport-zone will have markings and goals for several sports and will be available to the whole community. 

This grant is one of 42 awarded by our Board at their quarterly meeting on 21 October 2013.

Now that the grant has been awarded, our project manager will work with the parish council to confirm the scheme’s detail and draft the required documents so that work can start as soon as possible. 

Speaking about the awarding of the funding, Chairman of the parish council, Cllr Ralph Bagge, says, “This is great news for our project. The grant is very welcome and we look forward to working with the Trust team to ensure our plans become real and benefit people of all ages living in Stoke Poges.” 

The Executive Director of The Veolia Environmental Trust, Paul Taylor, adds, “This grant is a great example of how the Trust and the Landfill Communities Fund make a real difference to communities of all types across the UK. Every project is important to us and we look forward to seeing work start and the MUGA take shape.”
