Members of the Kingsmere Community Association (KCA) have received cash from the council’s Devolved Budget Scheme to spend on computers.

Sovereign ward councillors Gordon Jenkins and Philip Ede handed over £760 to pay for two laptop computers and two tablets, as well as art and craft materials.

The KCA runs various clubs for residents of the Kingsmere estate including junior and senior youth clubs, film evenings and football training sessions.

Lindsay Hedges, chairman of the KCA, said, “We are so grateful to the councillors for their donation. The laptops and tablets will make such a difference to members of the clubs.”

Cllr Gordon Jenkins added, “As one of the ward councillors I have been able to see first-hand the work that the KCA have done over the last few years, especially for the young people of the area and it really is remarkable. When we heard that they needed help to continue their good work, my colleague Philip Ede and I were pleased to be able to assist them.”

Councillors also agreed to fund a small sound system for the Langney Point and St. Anthony’s Neighbourhood Panel. The system was first used at their annual general meeting.
