Parish Council Receives Newsletter Grant

Selattyn and Gobowen Parish Council recently received the news that their grant application for £500 of funding to help towards the production of the Roundabout Newsletter had been successful. This is the second time in 2 years the Parish Council have been successful in obtaining this grant.

The ‘Roundabout’ was a Parish Project set up in 2003 to improve communication in the Parish. The publication is printed and distributed 4 times a year. Parish Clerk, Amy Gregory, commented, “The newsletter is produced solely by the Parish Council, who rely on Councillors and a team of actively involved volunteers to distribute the 1740 copies produced each quarter to every corner of the Parish. The Parish is continuing to grow with new houses which will mean longer delivery routes and more copies printed. The Parish Council are keen to ensure that each and every house in the Parish continue to receive a copy of the newsletter as the Parish continues to grow and are therefore extremely grateful to the Three Parishes Big Local for their support through the £500 grant”.

Three Parishes Big Local Chairman, Nick Heard, said “The biggest issue we found when we did our original research was that people complained that they didn’t know various events were happening so it is great to support the Selattyn and Gobowen Parish Roundabout in their efforts to keep everyone informed”
