The funding will be used towards the cost of running the Smithy Museum and Heritage Centre, which Owston Ferry Society looks after.

Councillor David Rose, ward member for Axholme South said:

“The Community Grant Fund was set up to help local groups like Owston Ferry Society. They run a number of buildings in Owston Ferry so this funding will help them with their yearly costs.
