LOTTERY grants of nearly £7million were awarded across Stratford district last year.

A total of 31 grants were given out in 2015 to help local art, sports and heritage projects along with community groups.

More than £500,000 was granted to build a new village hall in Cherington, Stourton and Sutton-Under-Brailes while Warwickshire Wheelchair Basketball Club and Stockton Primary School were each given around £10,000.

Any groups which have received lottery funding could also be in with a chance to scoop an extra £3,000 if they are nominated for a National Lottery Award.
