PARISH COUNCIL SMALL GRANTS SCHEME

THE 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 attended the Annual Vilage Meeting on
21st May 2019 to give a report.

APPLICATION

Applications are now closed until March 2020.

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.
