GOOD NEWS THRICE OVER FOR ST JAMES!
Three Awards will see significant improvements THIS SPRING in Queen's Crescent Garden.
First, Exeter St James Forum is delighted to be able to announce that an application by Exeter St James Community Trust Ltd for a grant from Department for Communities and Local Government's (DCLG's) Pocket Park Programme has been successful! £13000 has been awarded for immediate use.
Second, thanks to our local county councillor, Cllr. Jill Owen, a matchfunding award of £5000 from DCC Locality Budget will be used to boost the DCLG award, ensuring a bigger impact will be achieved, with much greater length of the walls receiving attention.
Third, as a result of the Community Matters Scheme where customers at John Lewis were invited to place a green token each time they shopped in the store for 3 months last year, Robyn Connett was invited to receive a cheque for £375 on behalf of Queen's Crescent Garden Project Group!
This money will be used towards the purchase of a noticeboard that will provide information in the garden related to the project and which should be erected in the next few weeks. Many thanks to John Lewis and their customers!
