Three Baldock organisations have been awarded funding of £2,000 by North Herts District Council’s Baldock District Area Committee.

The committee awarded the grants - subject to completion of certain formalities - during a meeting last week.

Baldock Rotary Club was awarded £1,150 to assist with purchasing and storing Christmas lights for the town centre and the Baldock Christmas Tree. The funding will also assist with the hire of a cherry picker crane to help install the lights.

Baldock Beats Waste was awarded £350. The funding will help with venue hire costs and with promotion of the group's messages to the residents of Baldock and the surrounding villages.

Turning Worlds was awarded £500 to assist with running a series of dance workshops for residents aged over 55. The workshops will be run at the Baldock Arts and Heritage Centre.
