Nettleham Parish Council Receives Grant From Star Energy

Nettleham Parish Council has recently applied for funding from Star Energy to help provide some equipment and fencing for the Bill Bailey's Memorial Field.

The council has been successful in being granted £6,000 towards a total expenditure of £10,000 to fence off the play equipment area. Unfortunately Star Energy have not given any grant to the purchase of new play equipment. Other sources of funding are also being investigated.

Member of Nettleham Parish Council, Cllr. Giles McNeill commented:
"I was, and remain, very much in favour of expanding the council's attempts to get more revenue from grant sources, the Parish Council has received virtually no grant income over the past five years, so this is a very welcome developement. I must praise the Council's staff who work very hard on delivering these achievements."
