£7k boost for Felpham good causes

GRANTS which total £7,000-plus are set to be awarded by Felpham parish councillors.

Members at the council meeting today (Tuesday, January 6) will be asked to approve the 13 awards to organisations which benefit the area.

The sums were agreed at last month’s meeting of the council’s finance and administration committee.

The total to be handed out later this year comes to £7,450.

Committee members decided £2,000 should go to The Base skatepark and £1,000 to Felpham Memorial Village Hall.

Felpham Sailing Club’s youth section is due to receive £850 to buy radios. Home-Start Arun, Felpham Community College, Bognor Regis Seafront Lights, Felpham Village Conservation Society and Arun and Chichester CAB are also due to receive grants if the council agrees.
