Small Grants for Community Groups and Organisations

The aim of the small grants scheme is to promote and support community activities in our area by providing one off grants for specific items that will support the establishment or development of groups. The grants are not intended to support everyday running costs but to enhance activities and enable the participation of more local people.

There is a standard and straightforward annual application process. Forms may be down loaded from the Community Council website or a paper copy obtained from the clerk at the above address. Applications should be returned by the dates specified below. Please be aware that there is a limited and capped budget for grants and the maximum grant you may apply for is £250. We wish to assist as many eligible groups as possible so please be aware that you may not receive the full amount requested. Please remember that any grant received from the Community Council can be used as match funding for bids to other potential funders.
