Horncastle’s County Councillor Bill Aron has revealed details of the groups and organisations he has supported through his Big Society awards.

The list includes the town’s Red Lion Theatre, which is battling for survival amid fears its town centre premises could be sold.

Coun Aron has contributed £250 to the theatre ‘fighting fund’ and is backing their bid to stay at the Red Lion.

He said: “The theatre is part of the fabric of Horncastle. We don’t want to see it disappear.”

Other awards include: LIVES (£200), Getaway Club (£150) Hundleby Parish Council (£150), WAG Screen (£150), Transition Town Horncastle (£150), Belchford and Fulletby Parish Council (£150), Hemingby History Group, (£150), Swaby Village Hall (£150) British Red Cross (£150).
