£23k for new play equipment in Kingsley Holt

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

A DONATION of more than £23,000 will help fund new play equipment for village children. Money raised from the sale of the former Kingsley Youth Club has been gifted to Kingsley Holt Community Fund for the new kit. A cheque for £1,000 has also been presented to Kingsley Village Hall for fire doors at the rear of the building.

The cash was presented by trustees of the Kingsley Community Fund, Ivor Lucas and Ann Evans, who were asked to oversee the distribution of funds after the closure and sale of the Kingsley Youth Club building.
The youth club closed down many years ago and a viable plan to keep it as a community building could not be found, despite several schemes coming forward.
The building was unused for some time and after numerous acts of vandalism and several break-ins, it was decided by the committee to put the building on the market and it was sold in 2017.
Now the money from the sale is lodged with the Community Foundation of Staffordshire and will be managed by Mr Lucas and Mrs Evans, who will consider applications for funding against criteria laid down in the governing rules for distribution.
The fund can only be used for the benefit of children and young people within Kingsley Parish.
