What activities should the City Council spend £395K on?

Consultation: City Council is surveying people in Lincoln about what kind of sports in their community should get funding.

The City of Lincoln Council is surveying people in Lincoln about what kind of sports and activities should get funding in their community.

The local authority plans to fund these activities with an application for £395,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities scheme later this year.

If successful, the money would be used to bring healthy activities and sport to Minster, Park, Abbey, Glebe, Castle and Moorland wards in the city.

Keith Taylor, Senior Sport Development Officer at the City Council, said: “If we are awarded funding from the Big Lottery Fund, we want to know the types of activities that people would like us to organise in their neighbourhoods.

“We know we want to provide healthy activities for young people and families, and we’d also like to give people the chance to volunteer with the scheme to get work experience and qualifications.

“But we also want to make sure we’re putting on the types of activities that people are interested in, so we’d like as many people as possible to fill out the survey.”

Projects would be aimed at seven to 17-year-olds, with extra events and activities for families. The online survey can be filled in at the City Council website.
