Chandler’sFord folk will get the chance tonight to decide exactly where money earmarked for community use should be spent.
Seventeen local good causes will be at the Dovetail centre tonight to vie for a slice of a £5,000 pie in an exciting ‘’Have your say’ event organised by the Parish Council.
Representatives from each of the applicant community organisations will pitch for funding after which the audience will vote in a ballot for their favourite cause – the fund will then be divided proportionately with the lion’s share going to the most popular causes.
A wide range of bodies have applied from throughout the parish and includes community and resident associations, youth and church groups, football clubs and playgroups.
All Chandler’s Ford residents are invited to come along and take part.
The event will run from 7pm – 8.30pm at the Dovetail centre at the Methodist Church on Winchester Rd. Refreshments will be provided.
