The BIG Local Initiative in Gobowen, St Martins and Weston Rhyn has been successful in securing a £20,000 fund as part of their Round 2 funding.
The money will pay for a project co-ordinator, new website and the development of a Youth Forum and Business Forum for this community. People interested in applying for the position of Project Co-ordinator should contact Laurel at Qube, Oswald Road, Oswestry on 01691 656882. Closing date is 22 June 2012 and the post is for 15 hours a week.
The BIG Local investment for this community totals £1 million over the next ten years and this latest bid sees the project moving forward from ideas generated by people from the local community who were keen to be involved.
“We are very excited about this next round of funding coming through and work can start on these new projects which will make a real difference to the villages of Gobowen, St Martins and Weston Ryn” said Helen Fairweather, Community Representative for BIG Local.
