A COLNE Valley community project is in line for a £50,000 windfall - but only if it wins an X Factor-style vote.
The Milnsbridge Matters scheme, run by the River Colne Project, aims to carry out improvements and install artworks at three sites in the village.
It is in the running to win £50,000 after reaching the final shortlist of the People's Millions competition run by ITV and the Big Lottery Fund.
To get the money, the Milnsbridge project will go head-to-head with another project in Yorkshire and face the public in a nerve-racking TV vote.
The other scheme is restoring woodland paths in Oakworth near Keighley.
ITV will send a film crew to make a short film about the project, which will be broadcast during the Calendar evening news programme at 6pm on Wednesday November 15.
Viewers will have the chance to vote for the project they would like to see win the money, just like in the TV talent-spotting show X Factor. Project officer for the River Colne Sculpture Trail, Emma Dean, said the contest presented an amazing opportunity.
She said the funding would be used to brighten up the village centre and give people an opportunity to decide how they want to transform each site.
She added: "Everybody can play their part by voting for this fantastic project.
"It will bring money into the area."
Voting will open at 9am on Wednesday, November 15 and close at midnight.
If you miss Calendar you can find out the number to text or vote by looking in the Daily Mirror or looking on the Big Lottery Fund website www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/peoplesmillions from 9am on the day of broadcast.
