Worthing community groups urged to bid for cash

COMMUNITY groups that enhance their neighbourhoods in Worthing have until January to see if they qualify for a cash boost.

Worthing County Local Committee wants to hear from organisations that could benefit from its Community Initiative Funding (CIF), which is cash it receives from West Sussex County Council to support projects in the borough.

Bob Smytherman, Committee Chairman, said: “Worthing is rich with a wide variety of organisations that make a valuable contribution all year round.

“CIF enables us to actively support their initiatives and projects in a positive and practical way.

“So we’re urging community groups in Worthing to contact their local County Councillor to support and discuss their proposals and ideas.

“We are also urging them to put their bid in as soon as possible because the deadline for this financial year is Friday January 6.”
