Club at risk as funding is cut


A volunteer-led group that aims to promote tourism in a historic town says it is still at risk of closure.

The Gazette reported in April last year that the Berkhamsted Community Partnership would close unless it found £10,000 by the end of the summer, following public sector funding cuts.

But the group is still going, however, project officer Graham Cox has cut his hours from 20 to around seven to make it financially viable for the group to continue.

Since installing two information boards last May, the group has only worked on one project - to install two benches in the town centre.

Mr Cox said: “That project has still not come to fruition.”
