Cheddar Parish Council is inviting local groups to apply for grants of up to £500 in its annual small grants award scheme. This year a total of £5,000 is available to help fund projects that will benefit the community. Voluntary, community and not-for-profit organisations may apply, including registered charities, churches and schools.
Up to 50% of the cost of projects will be funded and applicants must show how the balance will be raised. The Council will support a diverse range of projects including, but not exclusively, the promotion of community development and self help, meeting gaps in services, support for the rural heritage, reducing crime or the fear of crime and developing new initiatives.
Awards are made for the benefit of people living in the parish of Cheddar and must be spent within one year. Application forms are available from the Clerk to the Parish, Parish Hall, Church Street, Cheddar, BS27 3RA. Tel 01934 743217 or email email@example.com. Forms can also be downloaded. The deadline for submission of applications is 31st March 2017.
