Community projects worth in excess of £100,000 will be funded as part of the latest round of Enfield Residents Priority Fund (ERPF) decisions.

This month’s meeting, (7 January), saw 28 projects agreed by councillors. So far since April last year the fund has allocated £240,000.

The ERPF is a £700,000 pot of money made available by Enfield Council which residents can apply for to fund community projects in their local areas.

This month’s meeting agreed to fund projects including:
• Caribbean elders luncheon club in Bowes
• Community and school theatre event and workshops in Chase, Cockfosters and Town Wards
• Funding to support the Edmonton Foodbank
• Establishing a Skills Exchange programme across Enfield
• Community Singing Group
• Mobile CCTV Dome Hawks in Upper Edmonton, Haselbury and Palmers Green Wards

Cllr Yasemin Brett, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Organisations said “Once again Enfield Council have approved a raft of positive projects all dedicated to serving their local wards and communities.

“I am particularly pleased to see the continued commitment to the Edmonton Foodbank, whose services are now called on more than ever. It is also wonderful to see so many different groups receiving funding in this round.”
