Roaring Meg Community Support Awards

Community Support Logo 2016The Roaring Meg Community Support campaign will reward four lucky groups, who are looking to develop their local scheme, with a £2000 prize between September 2016 and May 2017.

Sarah Rawlings from Roaring Meg Retail and Leisure said they are encouraging groups in the area to come forward and let them know about their inspiring work to be in with a chance to win the Roaring Meg Community Support award. “As part of the wider community here in Stevenage, we take pride in being a big supporter of local groups and projects, especially through our purpose-built arts centre and we felt this award would be the best way to give recognition,” she said.

These awards are only open to community projects from within The Comet (North Hertfordshire) footprint, including the distribution areas of Letchworth, Stevenage, Hitchin, Baldock and surrounding villages.

Entries will only be accepted from community projects that are currently being developed and/or implemented and need the extra funding, not for projects that have been completed.

To submit your entry simply email communitysupportaward@thecomet.net with a 500 word (min.) detailed proposal of the project and its objectives, the name of the project, your contact details, when and where it will take place.
