Lincolnshire Co-op Community Champions – ‘Heads-Up for next Monday’

I am very pleased to inform you that our Community Champions application for the Spring quarter has made the final shortlist to go through to voting.

Voting will take place on the Co-op website and will run from next Monday 18th January to Sunday 31st January 2021. Anyone who is a member of Lincolnshire Co-op will be eligible to vote. All you have to do is visit during the voting window and vote to support the Branston Community Group – Good Neighbour Scheme.

Whilst online voting is encouraged it is understood that not everyone has access to the internet so the Co-op Membership Team will be on hand during the voting period to take any votes over the phone – just call 01522 781135.

Your participation in this process will assist the Group in potentially being awarded funding to help set us up and financially prepare us for 2021 and beyond, thus enabling us to continue to be able to provide this excellent capability for everyone across the community.

Please note the dates for the voting window, but rest assured I’ll be reposting this again.

Finally for today, LIncoln City Radio have kindly provided me with the first opportunity of 2021 to broadcast the Groups achievements, current status and the aspirations for the future – if you’d like to listen in, I’ll be on at 0930 am tomorrow morning!

Take care, Stay Safe and have a good week – Andy, Jim, Linda, Liam, Kev, Jonathan, Foxy and Joseph 👍
