Get ready for London torch relay

COMMUNITIES in the Mansfield area can get their hands on a slice of £10,000 as part of an Olympics-inspired initiative by Nottinghamshire County Council.

The ‘Knots in Notts’ scheme allows residents to apply for cash to spruce up their areas ready for the arrival of the torch relay on 28th June.

Local groups can apply for a maximum of £200 until 29th June to get their projects started or organise a community pledging event.
