At the Annual Parish Council meeting last Tuesday a number of community groups were presented with funding to support their ongoing community activities. On behalf of the Parish Council, the Chairman presented cheques to the following organisations:
Opal Club £150
Malpas Ladies Choir £500
Walking for Health £500
Minerva Arts £860
Village Fair Committee £1,000
Malpas Young Persons Centre £1,300
He praised the work of the voluntary sector and thanked all the community groups who enrich the village in so many ways.
In response the organisations spoke of their work in the community, and there were short presentations from the Scouts, the Young Persons Centre, Community Compass, Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Brightlife and Frack Free Malpas. Many groups raised the issue of a shortage of volunteers, and urged local people to get involved.
Representatives from a number of groups agreed that they needed to try and work together on this issue a volunteer information event will be held by Community Compass on the 15th June at the Young Persons centre.
