Cllr Bambos Charalambous, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure, Youth and Localism said: “2014 has begun with a whole new raft of fantastic Enfield Residents Priority Fund projects.

“The Fund continues to go from strength to strength, and last week’s meeting confirmed that £64,985 worth of projects are going to go ahead and be funded thanks to the continued success of the ERPF”
