Drumroll……after sorting through the fabulous proposals and applications submitted for the Beaufort Street Network’s Better Beaufort $1,000 Grant project, we have a winner!
Congratulations to Mel McVee who has successfully secured our first grant to activate the corner of Beaufort Street and Clarence Street with some amazing street furniture. The corner will soon be transformed into a chilled out area for you to rest and relax…and perhaps chow down on a Salsa’s taco or two whilst you are sitting near their store?! We can’t wait to share the finished product with you over the next couple of months. Stay tuned!
We received a number of applications which were all very worthy and it was a very close call – we would have loved to have been able to accommodate them all! As funds become available we will be rolling out further offers of grants to help our Better Beaufort initiative so keep in contact with us – join us as a member [here], on Facebook [here], Twitter @BeaufortStNet and Instagram @beaufortstreetnetwork.
