Haywards Heath police has donated £400 to Ashenground Community Centre to assist with the installation of CCTV.
Sue Netherway, centre manager, said: “The grant will be used towards the installation of CCTV, which is one of the requirements identified in order for us to be able to open a community cafe in 2016. We are seeking funding from elsewhere including the town, district and county councils.
“The community cafe is one of the community outreach initiatives the centre is hoping to set up following consultation with the local residents in 2014 and 2015. We are also preparing the main hall so we can start some family film evenings. Details will be placed on our website and the centre notice boards.”
The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
