Grants to Improve Access to Physical Activity across West Berkshire
Let’s Get Active!
In June, as part of the District’s recovery from Covid-19, West Berkshire Council partnered with Greenham Trust to create the Let’s Get Active Fund (LGAF), creating a £33,660.00 fund to improve access to physical activities in West Berkshire, via proposals developed and organised by local community groups.
So far, money from the LGAF has been spent on three exciting new projects: a new ‘Donnington Castle’ play structure for Shaw-cum-Donnington Parish Council, which will be completed soon; two football/rugby hybrid nets and a permanent wheelchair-accessible table tennis table for East Ilsley Parish Council; and a new community basketball hub for children based in Theale for Reading Rockets basketball club.
There is still £20,777 in the LGAF, and applications are considered on a rolling basis. If you would like to apply for a grant from the fund, you can find more information here: https://info.westberks.gov.uk/article/36079/Lets-Get-Active-Fund
