Sompting Big Local starts a Facebook page

THE group tasked with helping Sompting spend a £1million lottery grant over ten years has launched its own Facebook page to help it connect with the community.

Co-chairman Trevor Crowter wrote: “Sompting Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to the community.

“It is about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area and even better place to live.

“It is being run by Local Trust, which is working with the Big Lottery Fund and a range of partners providing expert advice and support for residents.”
