Potters Bar councillors give grants to community projects
GUIDES and brownies in Potters Bar will soon be able to practice archery thanks to a grant from Hertsmere Borough Council.
Cllr Eddie Roach, who represents the town’s Parkfield ward, has given �1,502.38 to the Potters Bar Girl Guiding Association to help set up a dedicated archery club for its members.
The money, which has been allocated under the council’s Ward Improvement Initiative Scheme (WIIS), will be used to buy bows, arrows, targets and other archery equipment.
Cllr Roach told the Potters Bar Edition: “This is a new idea and I am delighted to support it.
“Hopefully the benefits will be two-fold – it is something a little bit different for the current members and will teach new skills, but I hope it will also attract new members.

Elsewhere in the town, Cllr Tugay Sevincli has donated �200 towards new signs and balls for the Potters Bar Petanque Club, which is based in Oakmere Park.
