The Village Group is a working party made up of seven local residents from a broad background and varying occupations, who between them have contacts within local organisations, voluntary groups, sporting clubs, schools, businesses and Churches.
Using this knowledge the Village Group assists with the initial applications, asking for any further information or details that might be relevant or helpful in order for the trustees to make an informed and considered decision with regards to each application for funds.
As well as uniformed organisations, sporting clubs and social groups applying for funding in order to purchase equipment or furniture, local residents can make suggestions as to projects that they think will benefit the community as a whole, be it a bench on the seawall at Creekview Road, a notice board somewhere in the town centre, arranging an afternoon tea for elderly residents or establishing a mens shed.
The Village Group can be contacted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Details of all awards made will be published here on this website and in the local press.
