***** THE 2016 GRANT SCHEME IS NOW CLOSED - PLEASE RETURN DURING THE END OF SEPTEMBER / BEGINNING OF OCTOBER 2017 FOR THE NEXT ROUND *****
Every year the Community Council accept applications from local not for profit groups and charities. Over £20,000 is allocated to groups throughout the four wards to benefit the local community. Grants are given to sporting groups such as the local rugby, football, sub aqua, tennis and bowls clubs. Craft groups such as artists, patchworkers and felt makers. Children and young people groups like the Brownies, Scouts, Air & Army Cadets, Meithrin and youth clubs. Adult groups like the Over 50’s group, WI, OAP groups, Choirs and the Ramblers. Charities like Wales Air Ambulance and Bobath have also received grants in the past.
The Community Council invites any group who wishes to apply to request an application form from the end of September each year. Forms need to be returned with a completed balance sheet by the 31st October and Council will decide on successful applicants at the November meeting. Priority is given to applications from groups based within the Community Council area. Other groups may apply and Council will take into consideration the number of their members who live within the Community Council Wards when deciding to allocate a grant.
