Follow the money

A few days ago, we reported on the meeting to allocated Brockley's £10,000 locality fund, but we were a little hazy on the details of how the cash got divided. With thanks to Cllr Walton, here are the full details:

(1) Christmas lighting - Brockley Cross Action Group £250

(2) Benches outside Pitman House - Picnic benches where young people can socialise £1000

(3) Digicams project - Camera phones for young people to report graffiti etc to Love Lewisham, with monthly prize and end-of-year exhibition £1000

(4) Contribution to Brockley Fun Run - £1000

(5) Planting flower beds at Veronica House – project through Brockley Cross Action Group - £1000

(6) St Johns After School Club – contribution to storage facilities £1,000

(7) Contribution to Brockley weekend arts festival - Brockley Max (towards funding of children’s activities) £500

(8) Security light to illuminate the area adjacent to 1 Upper Brockley Road and thereby discourage antisocial activities £150

(9) Street trees at various locations around the ward £4,100

Which by our calculations, adds up to £10,000.

Now it's just a question of actually spending it properly...

I'd just like to under-cut whoever is charging a grand for benches and say that I'll knock you up half a dozen for £500!

My carpentry skills might not be great but let's face it, they're likely to be in pretty poor condition in a few weeks anyway, what does it matter???

I hope all of the money is spent efficiently.

Personally I'm disappointed the youth worker project wasn't supported.

"Digicams project - Camera phones for young people to report graffiti etc to Love Lewisham, with monthly prize and end-of-year exhibition £1000"

An end of year exhibition of what? The images of graffiti sent in? I'm confused, is this meant to discourage or encourage graffiti?

Where can we get more information about these projects? Can local people get involved? Who is organising/managing fun run for instance?
