Town Council Grants Scheme
Grants are allocated in June each year. Applications are welcome for grants between £30 and £2,000. Larger amounts may be considered in exceptional circumstances. Only one application will be considered per organisation.
Town Councillors considered applications that had been made in 2020-21 as usual at the Finance Strategy and Management Committee meeting, but were aware that there were some organisations who are uncertain about their activities in 2020-21. Additional applications will be considered in November 2020.
If you would like to submit an application for the 2020-21 scheme, please send applications by Friday 13 November 2020.
