Applications must be received by  28th March 2019.  A decision on how to split the money will be made at the meeting in April.  All successful applicants will be required to attend the Annual Village Meeting on 21st May 2019, funds will be transferred to bank accounts shortly after this date.

QUALIFICATION

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.
