Plans to spend Warsop Lottery cash

WARSOP residents are to decide how £1million Lottery cash will be spent on improving the town.

Warsop had previously been overlooked for Lottery cash, but news the Big Lottery Fund had set aside funding for the town came earlier this year.

Now plans are being made to spend the money, due to be released in January.

A steering group has been set up to help manage the spending of the cash. Field trips to areas with similar problems to Warsop have been undertaken to see what projects have worked for them.

The cash is going to be released in stages over a maximum of 10 years.

The next meeting of the steering group is taking place at the John Fretwell Centre, Sookholme on 25th October.
