Caroline Flint and Civic Mayor Linda Curran joined Councillor Phil Cole and Edlington Town Mayor Keri Anderson to celebrate the centre being awarded a £301,755 grant from the National Lottery Community Fund.

The MP and councillors were joining residents for the Edlington Great Get Together, hosted by the Hill Top Centre, which included a performance by A Choired Taste, a new Edlington choir who were making their first public appearance.

Caroline said: “The Great Get Together was a fantastic day and the new grant secured, after a year of preparation by Leigh Calladine, the Trustees and Hill Top Centre staff, guarantees the work of this centre for another five years.”
