Deal or No Deal?

St Margaret's make a deal with Veolia!

Deal or No Deal?

The St Margaret's Community Trust team recently went to make a presentation to the Veolia Board in London. Community Development Manager, Sarah Cooper, took the community with her when she went to see whether they could make a deal with Veolia.

Local MP Liam Byrne  took time out of his busy schedule to support the Trust at their presentation and even gave everyone a taste of Westminster with a quick tour of the Houses of Parliament.

The team have just heard that they've been successful in winning a £300,000 grant towards the new centre. It's a great boost to the Trust's work in the area. Sarah texted "Veolia said 'Deal' and St Margaret's Community Trust is to be their Flagship Project for the Region (West Midlands). So that's £300k coming our way for the new centre!!"

Ice House has been working with the team to put together an Activity Plan and are soon to submit their Heritage Lottery Bid.

Our photo shows the team with Liam Byrne at the Houses of Parliament on 5th July.
