We’re hearing talk of a “you say we pay” style event being planned where members of the community can bid for money, rumoured to be up to £2500, to boost positive work within the community.
From what we’ve heard, it’s aimed at getting those who wouldn’t normally speak up or air their ideas in public rather than the usual community groups and it’ll be the community who vote and decide who gets the cash.
So far, it sounds great. Let’s just hope that it happens. We’re voting to have a Gladiators style assault course built in the car park opposite the Phad Thai.
