£15.265 MILLION FOR LINCOLNSHIRE
Working nationally with the Local Government Association, where Lincolnshire Independent, Marianne Overton am Vice Chairman, we are pleased to announce we gained £2 billion from Central government for Adult Care, £15.266 million for Lincolnshire in the first year and £29.5 million altogether. This is a huge achievement as we made the case clearly against strong government pressure. The immediate boost was much needed and discussions are underway for a long- term solution. The full impact of the budget is considered in my article on the Lincolnshire Independent website.
COMMUNITY GRANT SUCCESS
“Well we did it! Voted as the Co-op’s community Champions for September, October and November 2017.” Thanks to Maureen Lunn for encouraging us all to vote in support of Welbourn Play Equipment. Two Champions per area were voted, play equipment for Welbourn and Navenby Parish Council. This means that for these particular three months people who use their Dividend Card in Navenby Co-op will be contributing (in addition to their own and Central Champions Dividend) to the Community Champion Fund. This fund will be divided between us and Navenby and could be as much as £1000.
