Grants for good causes from West Oxfordshire DC

Four sports and recreation-related projects look set to receive grants totalling 11,394 from West Oxfordshire District Council.

The Council has agreed to allocate funding to the following projects:

Chadlington Parish Council: 9,532 towards replacement playground equipment, including a new slide, spring rocker, basketball hoop and hexagonal climbing frame. In total, the new playground will cost 19,532.

Ascott-under-Wychwood Sports Club: 910 to replace all existing in-floor pipe work to the central heating system in the sports pavilion. Ascott-under-Wychwood Parish Council has also awarded a 650 grant towards the project, which will cost 2,600 in total. The club will pay the outstanding balance.

Newland Sports and Social Club, Witney: 600 towards repair work to the club building. The club, which is home to the only boxing club in West Oxfordshire and is also used by judo, weightlifting and football clubs, will pay the remaining 600 needed to complete repair work.

Witney Mills Bowls Club: 352 towards new tables and chairs in the upstairs Club room. Membership has increased since the Club acquired the room in September and the Club hopes this will continue to rise with improved facilities.

Funding is set to be allocated from the District Council's Sports and Active Recreation and Outdoor Recreation and Play Facilities Grant Schemes 2006/7.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "We are very pleased to support each of these worthy projects and are happy to continue supporting schemes that promote sports and recreation in our communities."
