The Coastal Community Challenge is a new voluntary community group acting as a partnership to deliver the Big Local £1 million lottery grant awarded to our area and to be invested throughout the next 10 years.
The final step before monies can be drawn down is for the partnership to develop a plan on how the funding can be used in our area (Mablethorpe and Sutton Town Council area). In furtherance of this they have already consulted locally with the “Big Ask” and the “Voice Your Choice” projects which together with the results of the recently compiled Community Led Plan they now have a good base to develop and produce the plan.
However with a view to allocating the money in the right areas for our community and being as inclusive as possible, they felt the plan would benefit from the inclusion of the future aims, objectives and plans of local community and statutory organisations. In this way the money will be used in the correctly identified areas of need.
To accomplish this the Coastal Community Challenge invited local groups to a pleasant open session recently at The Boatshed, Victoria Road, Mablethorpe. The event took place on Tuesday 27th November 2012 at 11.00am where members of the Coastal Community Challenge gave a short visual presentation followed by light refreshments giving a chance to network and speak more individually.
