A NUTHALL community group has been handed a welcome funding boost by a county councillor.

The Phoenix community group has been given £500 by Cllr Philip Owen from his divisional fund.

Group leaders, Linda and Tony Carter were thrilled to receive the cheque which they say will be used to help with meeting venue hire costs.

Every Friday between 12noon and 3.30pm the group meet at St Patrick’s Church Hall, Watnall Road.

This year the 20-strong club has been on days out to Skegness, market towns and boattrips.

Anyone interested in joining the Phoenix Community Group can call Linda and Tony on 0115 9382650.
