COMMUNITY groups in Nantwich are celebrating after Redrow Homes announced the successful applicants to its community fund.

Redrow set up the community fund of £10,000 at the end of last year and invited local causes to apply for a proportion of the funds.

After an excellent response the housebuilder has chosen the causes they would like to support and is linking up with seven local community groups.

The beneficiaries, and how they will be spending the funds, are as follows.

Beatmasters Martial Arts Gym – new uniforms and equipment.

Apex Cheer Nantwich – new uniforms and competition costs.

The Wingate Special Children’s Trust – contribution to specialist bed.

Nantwich Town Football Club – community football project.

Inner Trust Community Project – a creative counselling workshop for children.

7th SWC Nantwich Millfields Scout Group – camping equipment. 

Wrenbury Preschool – Forest Tots sessions in the summer.

Redrow is currently working on the first phase of its development in the town, Kingsbourne, which will feature 110 new three and four-bedroom homes from Redrow’s Arts and Crafts inspired Heritage Collection.

Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “We were thrilled by the reaction to the community fund and the variety of causes and ideas that came forward.

"It was incredibly hard to make a decision as to who we should support but seven causes were chosen and we can’t wait to see the impact the donations make on the local community.”

Nantwich FC chairman Tony Davison said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded a grant from Redrow’s community fund.

"This will allow us the buy new equipment for our community football teams and hold a Summer Football Festival at the Weaver Stadium with teams from all over Nantwich taking part.”
