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
