Parish council receives Telford 50 Legacy grant
Waters Upton Parish Council has received a £6,000 Community Building and Facilities Grant from the Telford 50 Legacy Fund.
The grant is to be used to contribute £5,000 towards the acquisition of the Parish Room Croft to ensure the village retains a green space.
A village green and children’s play area will be created on the land for the use of the immediate and wider community.
The remaining £1,000 will be used to convert the Parish Community Office into a meeting room and library.
Dozens of groups and communities across the borough have received funding from the Telford 50 Legacy fund to improve their facilities. To find out more visit www.telford50.co.uk/legacy
