Received this email today with regards the grant we applied for to make much needed
Improvements to the Ilkeston Road Recreation Ground.

“Hello Richard,

Sorry I have not been back in contact with you, I was hoping to have good news but unfortunately Groundwork’s bid for funding through the County Council Local Improvement scheme was unsuccessful. Broxtowe Borough Council are still supportive of the needs but again have not identified any funding. We can approach the individual County and Borough Councillors for smaller pots of funding to enable us to evidence need through consultation, develop designs and cost estimates, this would enable us to approach other funders however we will also need match funding for these other grants.

 Do you already have contacts with the County and Borough Councillors? If so it may be useful to try to arrange a meeting which I can attend to discuss a way forward.

Kind regards
