Money For Parish Plans

Other communities in South Northants could benefit from a new scheme which helped Wicken create much-needed facilities.

The village scooped more than £1,500 from a pot of cash made available by the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Some parishes have been awarded more from the Parish Plans fund including Syresham with £5,000 and Helmdon with £4,000.

The idea is for each parish hoping to win an award to come up with a blueprint of what it needs.

This will then be assessed and if feasible could scoop some cash.Wicken chose to spend its cash to help build a new village hall and introduce a website. The village's 30mph signs were also moved to extend the restriction.
