Local councillors are asking residents to suggest the best options for spending £12 000 earmarked for Kennington and Vauxhall. Labour has decided to continue a scheme which gives councillors a pot of money to distribute in their ward.
Last year councillors chose to fund:
-The Tree of Hope project – which will light up the large tree at Kennington Cross as a symbol of hope against violent crime in the area
-A project at Archbishop Sumner’s School to erect a greenhouse in their eco-garden
-The Creative Sparkworks project at the Old Lilian Baylis, providing art, craft & media activities for young people
-Initial security works to the disused Victorian gentlemen’s convenience at Kennington Cross, so that further work can proceed to convert the space into an arts centre.
Councillor Steve Morgan said ‘last year’s projects were really successful, and we want to make sure this year’s will be just as good. Please let us know if you have an idea for funding by getting in touch’.
