Four Eastwood groups and charities were awarded £5,624 this week.

£34,000 Government funding was awarded to Eastwood because it’s a deprived area.

Christian Churches Together, Eastwood Theatre, the SAFE shop and Communities Against Poverty were the first to benefit.

Cllr Keith Longdon was one of several on the funding committee to award the cheques.
