Over the course of three nights, local venues were packed tightly with members of our communities who had come down to support their friends, and vote on which projects they thought most deserved our funding.
As always, it was tough competition and this time around the majority of the pitches were deemed worthy of our funding as it was just too close to call! We were pleased to see so many people walk away happy, with the funding they need and full stomachs from the free food that has become so popular at these events.
