We are now also running a micro grants scheme, funded by the wind farm. Local groups can apply for up to £500 to help with their activities. Application forms are available at the post office and are reviewed on a first come, first served basis at our monthly community council meetings. We have a maximum of £2,500 a year to use for these micro grants so if your group is in need of something,please get in touch. For a full list of beneficiaries, see the bottom of this page.
After a long community engagement and consultation process, we recently published an action plan based on what you have told us you want to see in the town. The plan contains short, medium and long term plans and a copy was delivered to every house in the Community Council area. A funding committee has now been set up to accept and decide on funding applications from local groups.
Deadline for applications for the next round of funding is 31st March.
