Each year the Parish council sets aside in its budget a sum which is made available to village organisations in the form of grants. These can be for the purchase of new equipment, for maintenance and running costs – it is up to the organisers to put together a successful bid, and to persuade the Parish Council that the money will be well spent. The Finance Committee will review all of the bids that are received, and will make recommendations to the full council at the May meeting. The good news is that this year the total amount available has been increased by 8% to £1,350. Organisations wishing to apply for a share of this fund should contact me by email as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for bids will be Monday 11 May.
