"Your Choice" Grants 2015/16
The Parish Council has previously run a Small Grants Scheme available to local groups and charities. The Council agreed early in 2014 that they would replace this with a ‘Participatory Budgeting Scheme’ which would give local residents more say in which groups the Parish Council supported by way of voting at a public meeting and online.
This was run very successfully in 2014/15 with 8 groups from the parish receiving funding and the Parish Council agreed at a recent Parish Council meeting to run the scheme again for 2015/16.
Details of those receiving funding last year can be found on this website under Grants 2014/15.
Grants are available for up to a maximum of £250.
