THE Big Lottery fund is to splash some cash at Goldthorpe - with £1 million to be used to improve the area.
The grant, that means Goldthorpe and Bolton will effectively become ‘Big Local’ areas, was announced on Monday.
Coun Sharron Brook said: “It’s a step in the right direction. Anything that can help put some pride back in to Goldthorpe, as a place to live and to work is good. Some parts are very badly in need of help and groups must come forward with schemes.”
