Leicestershire County Council’s Community Forum Prize

At Mountsorrel Methodist Church we competed against ten other local good causes for a slice of £15,000 of funding that was available from the Leicestershire County Council Community Forum that covers the area through which the branch line runs. One of the projects dropped out before the evening and three others unfortunately left empty-handed. The prize winners were decided by a public vote and the Mountsorrel Railway Project came away with an allocation of £3,316 to go towards the cost of the proposed Bond Lane Halt.
