The Cressington Community First fund has money to give out to local groups or initiatives. The Fund is cash from the Government which is to be spend on things going on in Cressington. Decisions on what to fund are made by a panel of local people - who either live in the ward, work there, represent it or have a connection with it. There is an organisation on the panel too - the Citizens Advice Bureau.
The deadline for applications for the first bit of money is fast approaching - 22 June.
There is a website for the scheme http://www.cressingtoncommunityfirst.blogspot.com/ which has information about the process and the priorities.
Do have a look if you are doing something in Cressington ward that you think could benefit from some help.
