A new three-tiered amphitheatre could be built in Chapel St Leonards following a £72,700 grant being awarded to a new transformation scheme.

Not-for-profit business Waste Recycling Environmental Limited (WREN)awarded the money to the scheme which is set to take place at the Pullover at Chapel Promenade.

The plans include a three-tiered seating area in the style of an amphitheatre, looking out towards the sea.

It is hoped the community will be able to use it for outdoor performances and activities.

WREN Grant Manager for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Cheryl Raynor, said: “The funding for the Chapel St Leonards Seaside Community Space, which has been awarded by WREN, will create a real hub for the local community to come together.”

Lincolnshire County Council and Chapel St Leonards Parish Council are working together to deliver the project.

Executive Member for Economic Development Coun Colin Davie said: “It is fantastic that WREN can make funds like this available to communities and we are very pleased our project has been selected.

“We are looking forward to delivering this scheme to ensure it is ready for 2016.”

The Neighbourhood Management group are fully supporting the development and the partners want to develop a ‘Friends of Chapel Prom’ group.

The group would support the facility by giving up a short amount of time to check the area over and undertake simple maintenance tasks.
