Estate residents asked for help in spending windfall
Residents in St Matthew's, Leicester, are to be recruited to help decide how to spend £ million on the estate.
The estate was granted the cash a year ago and the plan is to set up a local partnership of residents to decide how to spend it. The National Lottery cash came through the new Big Local scheme, which gives cash to improve the country's most run-down estates.
St Matthew's has high unemployment, low wages, social exclusion and a historical lack of investment.
Half-term week, which begins on February 11, will see a variety of events in St Matthew's which will be used to recruit community-spirited residents.
