MORE than £32,000 will be spent on an innovative volunteer project to help forge closer links between military and civilian communities in Tidworth.

National charity, Spice Innovations Ltd, has received grant funding of more than £32,000 from the Armed Forces Community Covenant, to deliver the Time Credits Network to connect military and non–military families across Tidworth.

The Time Credits Network will thank volunteers involved in projects which bring together neighbours from military and civilian, with “time credits”, which they can exchange for local activities such as use of the leisure centre or cinema.
