Have your say on how to spend a million to improve Worle

People living in the Worle area of Weston-super-Mare are being set a challenge to help spend £1 million in their community by 2022. Residents living between St Mark's Church and Priory School/Sainsbury's and between Castlebatch community centre and New Bristol Road are invited to get involved. The invitation comes after news earlier this year that the area has been awarded £1 million from the Big Lottery, to be administered by the Big Local Trust, for community improvement projects. A meeting to discuss how to take the project forward and explore the needs of the area will be held on Monday 15 October, 7- 8.30pm, at Priory School, BS22 6BP. The funds could be spent on anything the community agrees will make a long-lasting difference to the area. It could be new sports facilities, projects for children, community celebrations, community spaces, events for older people – anything that is right for this community! Rebecca Mear, Chief Executive at Voluntary Action North Somerset said: "This is a great opportunity for people in Worle to get involved and help shape investment in their community over the next ten years. I'd encourage people to come along to our meeting to find out more and share their ideas." This area of Worle has been identified by the Big Local Trust as somewhere that can receive £1 million over the next ten years to make improvements that local residents want. Anyone who is interested in attending the meeting should contact Voluntary Action North Somerset on 01934 410 190 or email email@example.com .
