On the 19 November the NWIBLT Officer, Faye Smith, joined a phone in on the Radio Suffolk Mark Murphy Show for a discussion about what National Lottery funding was available in the region.
Faye described how one million pounds had been allocated to the Whitehouse, Whitton and Castle Hill areas to be spent over ten years and that a number of grants had already been awarded. The whole idea was to improve life in the North West and all decisions are being made by residents in the wards. Faye ended by giving contact details.
A later caller was pleased to report that her group had already been awarded two grants. The Chair of NWIBLT later said that “this was excellent publicity for what we are trying to do.”
