Crawley Borough Council has awarded community cohesion grants to three groups in this month’s round of funding.

The grants are designed to support activities that improve relationships between people from different backgrounds.

Crawley Festival was given £2,340 to continue to provide the Cultural Kitchen at its Mainstage event in the Memorial Gardens.

Maidenbower Park Community Club has been awarded £1,427 to help run its community fun day, which brings together residents, group and businesses from across the neighbourhood.

The Springboard Project, a charity that provides inclusive play and leisure opportunities for families with young children, has been awarded £410 to help equip its community kitchen at its Crawley base.

Phil Rogers, director of community and partnership services, said: “I’m delighted that we can help groups such as these by providing local community cohesion grants.”
