Local voluntary organisations can apply for grants from the Parish Council by sending in a request for 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.

This generous grant will enable the council to complete phase 1 of the improvements, which will improve the road crossings. Signs will also be installed in an attempt to make drivers more aware of their speed and make them slow down on what can be a very unsafe road. The Parish Council can now progress onto phase 2 of the safety improvements which involves working with the school head teacher and governors together with North Somerset Council to look into the potentially dangerous mix of the cars, coaches and students entering via the single entrance to the school in Meadow Close off Station Road.
