TWO other west Wiltshire community centres also received cash from the Government's £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund.

Trowbridge Town Hall Trust and All Saints’ Church in Westbury were among more than 2,700 recipients to benefit from the second round of awards.

Trowbridge Town Hall received£38,635 to help the organisation recover and reopen, while All Saints Church was awarded £24,400 to make essential repairs and improvements.

Trowbridge Town Hall’s director, David Lockwood, said: “I’m delighted that once again we’ve been able to bring central government money into Trowbridge.

"This award is testament to the local and national significance of the Town Hall to our cultural life and gives us the greatest opportunity of realising the enormous potential of the building.

"Moreover, this funding will enable us to give people in the town events to enjoy.

"Over the last year, we’ve given a lot of thought to the things we need to live. Now, hopefully, it’s time for us to return to the things that make life worth living.”

All Saints’ Church is the ancient parish church of Westbury and has served its community for more than 1,000 years. It is a key part of the visitor economy as a visitor attraction and provides a community space for all.

Churchwarden Beth Thomas said: "The grant will allow some essential repairs and provide improved interpretation and information to help visitors to the church know more about its history and stories."
