Swineshead’s new youth group is £650 better off thanks to a donation from Coun Michael Brookes.
Coun Brookes, a Lincolnshire County councillor and joint deputy leader of Boston Borough Council, donated the money from the county council Big Society Fund.
It will be used for start-up costs by the recently-formed youth group. Some has been spent on much-needed storage for new equipment and it also hopes to buy gaming equipment.
Coun Brookes is pictured presenting the certificate for £650 to Janet Harper (leader) with Swineshead Youth Group members and Michaela Housley (Lincolnshire County Council Boston Youth Community Worker).
