Published Friday, 08 November 2013

Community projects worth in excess of £70,605 will be funded as part of the latest round of Enfield Residents Priority Fund (ERPF) decisions.

Last night’s meeting (November 7th) saw 10 projects agreed by councillors. So far this year the fund has allocated £1,276,053.

The ERPF is a £1.4 million pot of money made available by Enfield Council which residents can apply for to fund community projects in their local areas.

Last night’s meeting agreed to fund projects including:
• Christmas Lights in Grange Ward
• A children’s play area in Highlands
• Ice skating in Ponders End
• Develop a small pocket park in Elsinge Road
• Drumming workshops for local people in Palmers Green
• A footcare service for elderly people in Chase

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure, Youth and Localism, Cllr Bambos Charalambous, said: “Last night it was agreed to continue to fund more projects right across the borough through Enfield Residents Priority Fund money.

“The fund continues to see residents working with their local councillors to bring about change in their wards which bring benefit to all sections of the community.

“If you have a project you feel would benefit your local area, why not apply to the fund?”
