A grant for Indian Queens Pit

I am pleased to be able to announce that I have been able to secure a grant of £6,090 for the Indian Queens Pit Association. The money comes from the latest round of funding from the Big Lottery’s Awards for All programme.

The money will be used to purchase kitchen fittings, heaters, tables and chairs for the new community building, which the Association has just constructed in the car parking area alongside the Pit.

This is great news for our project. The building itself has been completed and this latest grant will ensure it will soon be ready to be in use by the Pit Association and the wider community.”

The overall project cost over £120,000 with grant funding from the Clay Country Local Action Group (£60,000), Cornwall SITA Trust (£30,000), St Enoder Parish Council (£12,000) the former Restormel Borough Council (£4,630) and a large amount of local fundraising.
