The item was presented by the Area Council Manager. The attention of Members was drawn to the expenditure in 2016/17, with all of the £51,000 allocated.
Members noted the opening balance for the 2017/18 financial year, Members noted the awards made, and the figure remaining for allocation.
The Area Manager added that since the reports were printed, the Ward Alliance had met and considered a number of allocations and therefore the remaining balance was in the region of £6,000.
Members commented that the Ward Alliance Fund had supported a wide range of quality projects, geographically spread throughout the area.
It was noted that groups in receipt of Ward Alliance Fund finance would be asked for more detailed performance information in future. This would assist in producing a more detailed report for the Area Council.
RESOLVED that the report be noted.
