Chorlton’s “U Decide” Event To Allocate £7,500 of Funding

Chorlton residents are being invited along to a ‘U Decide’ event this Thursday to help allocate £7,500 of council funding to local community projects.

At the event, which takes place Thursday 17th November, community groups will present their proposals to Chorlton residents who will then get to vote on which ones get the go-ahead. Fifteen groups have put in bids including ones from organisations such as Cracking Good Food, a tree planting project, a group which wants to grow food at a local school as well as bid to support an allotment’s bee keeping activities.

Projects can ask for a maximum of £750 although some are asking for less and all projects have to benefit Chorlton. Other bids include projects to involve youths in digital workshops, a speaker’s corner, an art session at Waters Edge Art Centre, a performance by young people at a residential home and funding for Chorlton’s Open Festival.

The U Decide events have been running for a couple of years and are well attended. The event will be held on the 17th of November, 6pm at the Chorlton Leisure Centre on Manchester Road.
If you happen to be attending, please let us know as we are looking for someone to report on the event. mcmonthly@gmail.com will get to us!
