Grimsargh Village Hall where the Parish Council meets

A parish council in Preston has received £200 to help fund a leaflet about the Guild.


Grimsargh Parish Council was awarded a grant from Lancashire County Council to keep its residents in the loop on all things Guild-related.

Sue Whittam, clerk to the council, said: “This is a good example of the community working together to celebrate Preston Guild 2012.”

The leaflet has information about Guild activities and will go to every house in Grimsargh.

The funding came from the County Council’s champion for parish councils, councillor Mike Otter.

He said: “These groups do a superb job providing activities and services for the people of Lancashire.

“They are the closest tier of local government to the community and it’s vital we do all we can to help them out.”
