BACK on track for now and the future... That was the vow from board members of a neighbourhood management group who this week pledged to continue to fund deprived areas of the town.

BACK on track for now and the future... That was the vow from board members of a neighbourhood management group who this week pledged to continue to fund deprived areas of the town.

More than two months after The Journal reported that Waveney District Council had “suspended” around £500,000 of funding ear-marked for deprived areas, the Low-estoft Together initiative is online once more and working towards its next board meeting in November.

Lowestoft Together chairman Sue Henderson said this week: “We are back in business, and the general mood is upbeat. “The whole idea is for us to be sustainable and how we can now go forward.”

Earlier this month, the board voted to agree to a revised budget as devised by the council. And, although board members were unhappy with the situation, they felt it was more important that they resumed their business of supp-orting the community with grants.

“To this end we're looking at how we can work together now and how exactly we go forward in our new capacity,” said Mrs Henderson.

If you would like to know more about possible grant aid through Lowestoft Together, telephone Bob Russell on 01502 523183.
