Four Colchester-based community organisations will be better placed to serve borough residents thanks to a £30,000 funding boost to improve facilities.

Colchester Arts Centre, Colchester and Tendring Women’s Refuge, Colchester Canoe Club and Colchester Community Voluntary Services successfully bid for their share of Section 106 money, made available in March 2015 through Colchester Borough Council for building maintenance.

Each will be putting the money to good use on the repair and refurbishment of buildings between now and April 2016. Works will include replacement doors and windows, electrical wiring upgrades, heat detectors and a burglar alarm, improving the safety of each facility for all users.

Information on this and future funding opportunities is available in the Grants section of www.colchester.gov.uk/community

· Colchester Arts Centre £2,348
· Colchester and Tendring Women’s Refuge £11,725
· Colchester Canoe Club £3,000
· Colchester Community Voluntary Services £13,000

Total awarded: £30,073

Section 106 funding is a contribution from developers to support local infrastructure which includes community buildings that serve residents from across the borough.
