We’ve just held the second meeting of the panel. Now that we’re getting to grips with things it looks as if it could shape up rather well. We’ve also approved our first bid for submission – more detail later. We’ve also decided our first five priorities. Put briefly they are Community Cohesion, Youth Provision, Older People, Community Safety and Environmental Engagement. These will be fleshed out as time goes along and we start to get further bids in.
The priority now is to get more ‘first year’ bids so that we take up the available funds.
