Grants

The Town Council receives many applications that meet all of the grant criteria: it regrets that it cannot award grants to all of the very good events and organisations that it would wish to fund.

Grant funding from public funds is discretionary. No organisation or event is entitled to receive funds and applications which do not meet the grant criteria will not be funded.

To view the Grant Criteria adopted on the 25th September 2017, please click here.

Organisations that do not show a willingness to work positively with the Town Council (or other stakeholders) are not likely to be able to demonstrate that they fulfill the grant criterion requiring them to be “open, honest and fair in their dealings with all stakeholders” and will therefore not be entitled to a grant.
