People in the Haverhill South ward are being asked to suggest ideas and then decide on how £200,000 worth of investment can be spent in the area.
Community Action Suffolk successfully bid for the grant from the People’s Health Trust, which works to ensure that where you live does not unfairly reduce the length of your life, or the quality of your health.
Local residents will form a panel to decide how the money is spent over the next two years, ensuring that the investment supports the needs of the local community.
All residents, whatever their age, are being encouraged to think about what they would like to see in Haverhill South, such as new activities and services, play equipment or a community garden etc.
Community Action Suffolk will soon be sending out over 3,000 postcards across the area asking people for their ideas on how to spend the investment in their community.
Ideas can be submitted on the postcards which will be delivered in the coming weeks, texted to 07990576893 or emailed to Elaine Hewes, Volunteer Field Officer, Community Action Suffolk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
