‘Voice your choice’ for best community projects at library

Residents in Scarborough will once again be given the chance to vote for their favourite community projects when local groups and organisations compete for their share of more than £19,000 of council funding.

The Scarborough Urban Area Forum will be hosting its third Voice Your Choice decision-making event on Wednesday June 20 from 5pm at Scarborough Library in Vernon Road.

Residents of the Central Urban Area of Scarborough which includes the local authority wards of Castle, Central, Ramshill, Weaponess, Falsgrave Park, Stepney, Woodlands, Northstead and North Bay, who are aged 11 years and over are invited to go along to see a display of 16 community projects based around this year’s theme of “The Environment”.

Each display will have information about the group’s proposed project and a member of the group available to answer any questions.

Residents are asked to view all project displays giving every project a score between one and five. The projects with the most votes will be awarded funding.

The voting process should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete and will be a “very informal evening” with refreshments available.

Residents are welcome to stay at the event for the results to be announced at about 8pm.
