Bensham Grove, a much-loved community space, has been awarded £105,793 of European Regional Development Funding.

The funding will go towards the refurbishment of the Grade 2 listed building's first floor into studio space for existing and promising entrepreneurs.

Shirley Brown Chair of Bensham Grove said: "We are thrilled that this funding will help us transform our upstairs rooms. They will become four fully equipped studios to help local people start new business ventures, support existing businesses and secure Bensham Grove's future.

"I'd like to thank the project team who have worked tirelessly to secure the funding and help Bensham Grove to stay thriving."
