A replacement climbing frame is among the good causes to benefit from cash handouts by Morecambe Town Council.

The council has awarded £500 to the Morecambe War Memorial Hall for the climbing frame used by local groups and children.

Other organisations to benefit from grants included Morecambe Artist Colony who received £500 towards a floor-based piece of artwork for children to ‘interact with’ on bicycles and scooters.

A second bid by the Artist Colony towards a ‘Welcome to Morecambe’ sign was turned down because it did not meet the council’s minimum criteria score.

More Together Magazine has received £496.25 towards workshops in publishing, graphic design and photography for the residents of the West End. XEED got £500 towards the cost of six-week self-management courses for those who are living with a long term health condition in Morecambe. Morecambe Homeless Action received £500 towards the cost of Saturday drop-in sessions.

And Homestart Morecambe gained £500 towards support materials, trip and venue hire to continue supporting clients who have suffered from domestic violence.

Bids from West End and Heysham Allotment Association and Morecambe Brass Band also did not meet criteria and were refused.
