PARISH COUNCIL SMALL GRANTS SCHEME
The Parish Council aims to operate a modest grant scheme each year for small sums between £50 and £1,000.
Grants awarded in 2019/20 were as follows;
Crew £100 – Junior Crew £100 – Senior Citizens £150 – Charter Fayre £200
Sports Field £950 – Village Hall £1000
All groups in receipt of a grant will attend the Annual Meeting on 21st May 2019 to give a report.
Applications are now closed until March 2020.
To apply for a small grant, applicants must be Voluntary groups or Charities, providing a service which clearly and directly benefits a significant number of Parish Residents.
The Council defines a voluntary group as a “not-for-profit” organisation set up and run by Volunteers and a Charity as an organisation registered as a Charity.
Grants are made to support special events, help meet deficits on future running costs, help encourage new groups, or to help fund one-off expenditure such as the purchase of new equipment.
Grants will only be made to organisations which need financial help and may not be used to cover money already spent.
