October 2023 – District Councillor report
Community Funding Workshop
The Community Funding workshop is designed to inform community groups about funding allocation, Lottery SK, SK Community Fund and the UK shared prosperity fund.
Free workshop will provide informal discussions on what’s available to support small grass root events and initiatives through to larger projects needing capital investment so if anyone is interested, please let me know and I will put them on a list for the next session.
The new edition is available online. People can subscribe online via the link: http://www.southkesteven.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=2321
Household Support Fund
The household support fund (HSF) aims to provide support to vulnerable households that are most in need during the period 2023/2024. The Funding has been made available by the DWP and is being distributed by District Councils elected members supporting SKDC residents. Members can make a referral on behalf of residents who are struggling with the cost of household essentials. Please let me know if you have any residents that would benefit from this.
Bytham Spinney Update
Great news the Spinney in Little Bytham has managed to get all the funding it needs for replacing the play equipment. The contractors are due to start on site within the next couple of weeks. It will be closed for possibly 3 weeks but the details will be on the Bytham Spinney website.
A new parking order was introduced by SKDC on Sept 26th following complaints from Coach Companies that drivers were using the Stamford bus station as a free car park. The area will be monitored by the Councils enforcement officers who can issue fines.
