Community Groups Awarded Parklife Grants

by prestwichfocus on 30 March, 2022

Groups in Prestwich will share £40,000 from the Parklife Festival in 2021. The annual concert raises money for a Community Fund which is distributed to organisations in Prestwich as well as wards in Rochdale and Manchester as these are the three boroughs closest to Heaton Park.

The money has been awarded to 32 community groups in Prestwich to deliver a range of projects with a particular focus on maximising the use of green space and activities for young people. 

The Parklife Community Fund will reopen for applications in the summer following the 2022 festival in June. Details will be circulated on the council website and via Prestwich Community Hub: prestwichcommunityhub@bury.gov.uk

    Great stuff, about time we got to know where the money went. But what about us on the fringes? I have been waiting ages for a name from Steve as to who the Rochdale contact is!!!
