RORY HERALDS £26,634 FLOOD RESILIENCE PAYMENT TO CROSBY-ON-EDEN SCHOOL
Rory Stewart MP has welcomed the approval of a £26,634 grant from the Education Funding Agency for future flood resilience measures at Crosby-on-Eden C of E Primary School.
The grade II listed building was badly hit by floods during Storm Desmond, with only one classroom remaining dry, and Rory has been pressing hard for as much financial support from the Government as possible since he visited the school in January.
Rory Stewart said: “I am delighted at the announcement of this EFA funding approved by Lord Nash which will ensure the school can make itself resilient against flooding in the future. And I would like to thank the teachers and staff at Crosby-on-Eden school for working so hard to ensure that the education of the children did not suffer, despite huge disruption.”
