Grants

Local voluntary organisations can apply for grants from the Parish Council by sending in our application form to the clerk.  That needs to be completed and returned by the 31st August.  Following review in the Finance working party, Full Council decides about the applications at the January budget meeting, and applicants will be notified of the outcome following that meeting.  Successful applicants will receive funding during the April Annual Parishioners meeting. When approved the grant schedule forms part of the Minutes and so is uploaded to the website including details of all applications and amounts requested/approved. The Parish Council is also represented in some village charities / funds which can help individuals.
