The Parish Council has a budget to make small grants on a discretionary basis to voluntary organisations and community groups that provide services that benefit the economic, environmental and/or social well being of residents of the Parish: This includes, but is not limited to:
- Capital grants for equipment
- Revenue grants to pay running costs and salaries for one year
- Funding for particular events or activities
- Funding for particular projects
- Free or reduced charges for use of council facilities
In deciding on the allocation of grants, the Parish Council will take into account the financial status of the organisation/group, who in the community will benefit from the grant, and how the application addresses one or more of the Council’s Priorities:
- Listening and responding to the views and needs of local residents in order to be a strong and recognisable voice for the village
- Providing the public with exceptional service and high quality, value for money services accessible to all
- Protecting the vulnerable, working in partnership with the community and the voluntary sector
- Encourage participation in the work of the Parish Council and to ensure transparency in all aspects of Parish Council decision making.
- Taking steps to improve the environment and ensure that sustainable policies are agreed to protect current and future village life.
