Sandy Community First provided funding for small community projects in the area.
The panel comprised members of the community and Sandy Town Councillors.
The Sandy Community First Panel distributed small grants of between £250 and £2000 to local organisations and people with brilliant ideas for making Sandy an even better place to be.
The funds came from central government’s Community First Programme and from Sandy Town Council’s community grant programme.
Sandy was awarded £16,985 in 2011 to be allocated and spent over four years.
Some of those who received a slice of the money were Sandy Pre-school, Sandy Air Training Corp, Sandy Historical Research Society, Dragons Thai Boxing Gym, Sandy Helping Hands, Shefford and Sandy Hockey Club, Sandy Carnival Association and Sandy Christmas Lights.
