Alan Bain from the BetterBearwood group posted this on Facebook last night, and it has now been confirmed.
Hi everyone, unfortunately Bearwood has been unsuccesful in it’s funding bid from the Portas Pilot Fund. Winning bids this time around to be announced officially on Saturday but Wolverhampton, Margate, Nelson, Stockport, Stockton on Tees, Bedford, Dartford, Liskeard and Bedminster are supposedly winners.
However, we have been put through to the next round where 15 new towns will be given funding at the end of June. So, if you want to help in sharpening up our bid for this round of funding let us know. We are meeting next Wednesday at St Mary’s Church to discuss.
