Community projects including social media training and a second hand shop teaching special school pupils to run a business will benefit from £80,000 community funding.

Enfield Brough Council allocated the money from its Residents Priority Fund last week. 

So far the council has given out £1.3 million of the £1.4m pot to projects in the borough.

Among projects receiving money are social Media training for women in Lower Edmonton and funding to help special schools Waverly and Durants, both in Enfield Highway, run a second hand shop.

Enfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for culture, leisure, youth and localism Councillor Bambos Charalambous said: “Last week it was agreed to continue to fund more projects right across the borough through Enfield Residents Priority Fund money.

“I am delighted to see the fund continues to attract such interesting projects right across Enfield”.

Other projects given funding included:

  • Work in Forty Hall Park including bat boxes and flower planting
  • A Green Gym in Jubilee Park to encourage fitness for park users
  • Wilbury Open Space Regeneration
  • An alleygate off Bounces Road
