Grants and Donations
The Mayor Councillor John Price handed over cheques to Ray Pickett from Oswestry Olympians and to Warren Howells from Oswestry Rugby Club.
The Mayor said, "Both organisations encourage, and provide a structure for people to stay fit and active and play an important role in our community".
"The Council were pleased to support the Oswestry Olympians and their 10k race, the grant will be used towards prizes for the childrens races. Oswestry Rugby Club have recently broken a world record, they are a long established community based sporting organisation and have many young rugby players. The grant will be used to purchase lights for training. I am heartened that there are people like this in our community and I look forward to inviting both organisations back to give Council an update on the difference that the grant has made and I wish them every success. "
