Locality budget: county councillors each have a sum of money they can spend on local needs and requirements. Currently this is £8000 a year.
In the past 12 years my locality scheme has funded a very very wide range of diverse needs and enhancements for the town and its residents. Including:
benches, noticeboards, library reading scheme enhancements (including a giant and a fire breathing dragon), a tenor for Britten’s War Requiem, Queen’s 90th Birthday badges for every child in Woodbridge, festivals and concerts, a sit-in lawn mower, promotional videos, cycling maps, Jetty Lane design, servicing a virtual baby (!), shopping bags, laptops, a youth club karaoke machine, football club strip, swimming club and youth club kit, outdoor gym equipment…
… the list goes on and on
