Oyster Community Press are aiming to deliver a project providing a series of printmaking workshops at Tower Street Print leading to an exhibition at DanceEast. This project aims to work with Suffolk Family Carers to offer respite, build confidence and tackle isolation for unpaid younger adult carers who are not served by other schemes. Younger adult carers have been identified as a group, as having fewer options for respite and wellbeing opportunities. The awarded £450 will enable the delivery of this ‘Who Cares’ Project.
The Ipswich Jazz Festival is a relatively new feature in the town’s calendar taking place at St Peter’s by the Waterfront Church in central Ipswich. Area Committee funding will allow for two shows within the programme to be absolutely free to attend and also to allow for 75 concession tickets to be given out for £1 per person for lower income families. The agreed funding of £581.25 will enable this festival to be more accessible for those who cannot afford to go to concerts.
In March 2018, the North West Area Committee allocated £3,227.92 to the Parks & Cemeteries Service toward the cost of improving one of the ‘jump off’ points at the Whitehouse skate park. Through consultation, the proposed improvement has been revised to a more durable and less costly solution. The Committee agreed to vary its allocation to enable this revised application for the reduced amount of £3,085.36.
The next meeting in the North West is to be held on Thursday 17 January 2019, 7pm – St Raphael Club, St Raphael Court, Highfield Road, IP1 4JP
