Residents in Scarborough have the chance to vote for their favourite community projects as local groups and organisations compete for their share of £20,000 of funding from Scarborough Borough Council
The Scarborough Urban Area Forum will host its fourth Voice Your Choice decision-making event this evening. Residents of the central urban area of Scarborough (Castle, Central, Ramshill, Weaponness, Falsgrave Park, Stepney, Woodlands, Northstead and North Bay wards) aged 11 years and over are invited to come along to see a display of 16 community projects. The ‘drop in’ style event will be held at Scarborough Library on Vernon Road between 5.00pm and 7.30pm.
This year’s projects will be based around three themes: enterprise and innovation, employment and skills and financial inclusion; applicants will have to demonstrate how their project links to one of the three themes. Each display will have information about the group’s proposed project and a member of the group will be available to answer any questions.
Residents will be asked to view all project displays and give every project a score between one and five. The projects with the most votes will be awarded funding. The voting process should take no longer than half an hour to complete and it will be a very informal evening with refreshments available. Residents are welcome to stay at the event for the results to be announced at approximately 8.00pm.
The fund is financed by Scarborough Borough Council’s Central Urban Area Committee, which is working in partnership with Scarborough Urban Area Forum to deliver the programme.
