Nick Delighted at News of Local National Lottery Funding Awards

Local Member of the Welsh Parliament for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, has welcomed news of three projects in his constituency which have recently been awarded funding from the National Lottery Community Fund.

Speaking today Nick said: “It’s great news that Swallow Park in Mitchel Troy will receive a £96,850 grant to build a fun, interactive park facility for the children of Mitchel Troy and the surrounding villages in the theme of a Magical Pirate Ship. The work will start very soon with the project hopefully to be completed by the end of October.

“ Mind Monmouthshire has been awarded £25,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund in August. This funding will cover the salary of an existing part time well-being worker for nine months to support people with poor mental health.

“Finally, an award of £100,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund will support the Quest Busters (QB) project based at Bridges in Monmouth. This project provides activities for young people between 8 and 17 years of age who have additional needs.

Nick added: “All these local projects in my constituency will make an incredible difference to people’s lives and their local communities especially while we deal with the increasing challenges posed by Covid-19. Thanks to all those who continue to play the National Lottery. This is wonderful news for Monmouthshire.”
