HAVE your say on which projects receive part of a £20,000 fund available to community groups in Ryde.

Ryde residents will decide which community projects they would like to see funded and where the public budgets should be spent.

Hampshire Constabulary and Sovereign Housing Association have made £20,000 available to community groups to bid for projects relating to:

  • Engaging young people

  • Bringing the community together to improve well-being and mental health issues

  • Addressing anti-social behaviour

At an open meeting at Ryde Academy on Saturday (July 2), community groups will present their ideas.

The event is open to all Ryde residents, and attendees will be able to vote and make a direct difference in improving the community.

Acting Sergeant Jason Taylor, Ryde Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This is a great opportunity for the Ryde Community to have a voice.

“This is an event where your vote can actually make a difference.”

The open meeting starts at 1pm through to 4pm, with the vote for the 15 projects that applied for the funding taking place during the event.
