£4,400 for day centre

MILL STREAM day centre in Benson has been awarded a £4,400 grant by Oxfordshire County Council.

MILL STREAM day centre in Benson has been awarded a £4,400 grant by Oxfordshire County Council.

The money will enable the purchase of new carpet tiles, vertical blinds and crockery.

Chairman Ian Leppard said: “We are very pleased to receive the grant as it will allow us to move on with our planned internal changes more quickly than we anticipated.

“I don’t know how long the carpet tiles have been down there but it must be more than 10 years and the vertical blinds will be much tidier.”

County councillor Tony Crabbe, who granted the money from his area stewardship fund, said: “I am very pleased to be able to do something for the day centre, which is a very good cause, in my last year as a county councillor.”

The centre’s book sale last month raised £525.
