Caister cash is real deal
PUBLISHED: 16:44 30 November 2010
CAISTER is set to benefit from a £10,000 cash bonanza with residents voting on how the money is spent.
Community organisations and projects can bid for a slice of the funding from the scheme called Caister – The Real Deal.
A steering committee, comprising of local residents, parish and borough councillors, and local authority representatives has been set up to oversee the process.
Leaflets were delivered to villagers inviting suggestions about any worthy project, plan or scheme.
Views have been collected and now residents will be balloted about their preferred choices with voting slips delivered to every household between December 11 and 13.
An open day is being held at the Council Hall, Yarmouth Road, where people share their views with steering committee members.
Ballot slips will be given to any resident who wishes to cast their vote at that time. The last date for votes is Friday, December 31.
Votes can be made by post to The Real Deal, Caister Youth and Community Centre, Yarmouth Road, Caister-on-Sea. NR30 5BS; by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or at voting boxes at: Offord’s Post Office, 9 – 11 Yarmouth Road; Tesco Stores, Yarmouth Road; Caister Library, Beach Road; The Post Office, Winifred Way.
Cash from Community Cohesion funding is part of the Participatory Budgeting Scheme distributed by Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
