Labour-run Maghull Town Council launches grant scheme to help to

Maghull Town Council Labour Group are helping town’s community groups.


Labour-run Maghull Town Council is inviting community groups in the town to apply for a share of funding from the council's Community Grant scheme.

The scheme is designed to help community groups to develop and expand.

Maghull Town Council Labour leader Cllr Patrick McKinley said the council wanted as many groups as possible in the town to apply.

Cllr McKinley said: "Community Groups in this town play a huge part of helping to develop the sense of community that is Maghull.

"Since we took over the council, my Labour colleagues and I have been working to encourage and help these groups to develop.

"The role our community groups play in this town cannot be underestimated. From giving people the chance to get together with other people and tackling the problem of social exclusion to working to proactively improve our community. Our community groups are invaluable and deserve all of our support."

Groups can apply for a grant by contacting Maghull Town Hall on 0151 526 3705.

Cllr McKinley said: "We have taken great strides in helping community groups and that has included opening up the town hall for organisations to use.

"These grant will hopefully go further and help existing group to build on what they have done so far, or it can be used for people to set up new groups.

"All's you have to do is apply and if you are are successful, your community group could benefit."
