GLEAN LIBRARY GRANT

Gnosall’s community hub &library project gets lottery funding

All those involved in the Gnosall community library are delighted to announce that they have been successful in being awarded a large grant from the Big Lottery Fund. Gnosall Parish Council submitted the application to the Awards for All which was accepted. A grant of £9,830 has been awarded. The Big Lottery Fund told us:‘Receiving this award is a mark of the quality of the work you are doing in your community.’

‘We have known the good news for some weeks,’ said Mary Booth,who is the contact for the grant application,‘but we had to wait to tell everyone until the Big Lottery Fund made the announcement. We are most grateful to National Lottery players for supporting good causes in their community.’ 

The funds will be used for provision of a ramp for the building,new carpeting for the Youth Club room next door which will be open for library users,and for other essential items needed for the project. It is intended that there will be extra activities associated with the library,making it a hub. The new building will be owned by the Parish Council,leased to Staffordshire County Council and GLEAN will run the new community library within it,with the help of local volunteers.

GLEAN (Gnosall Library Environment and Nurture) Hub is a registered charity,number 1175263. Gnosall currently has no permanent library provision since the demolition in 2015 of the previous library which was situated within St Lawrence Primary School.
