Gobowen, Selattyn, St Martins & Weston Rhyn Local Joint Committee (LJC) will be holding their final meeting for 2011/12 on Tuesday 14 February 2012 at All Saints Church Hall , Gobowen.  The meeting will start at 7pm and look at issues affecting people in the area.

The meeting will be the last opportunity for organisations serving the local area to apply for grant funding to support projects in this financial year.  To date a total of £21,757 has supported 21 projects, which leaves £5,038 awaiting allocation.  The closing date for applications, set at 11 January 2012, has been extended  to 16 January 2012  due to the need for family time over Christmas and new year.

Councillor David Lloyd, Chairman of the Gobowen, Selattyn, St Martins & Weston Rhyn LJC, said:

“Our grant funding has made a real difference to the area, and I am delighted that we can help groups facilitate pilot projects that are difficult to fund.  We are one of six Big Local areas across the country project which is going to bring funding of one million pounds to the area.  Our support will help groups prove outcomes position projects that offer economic benefit to the area.”
