Apply for a grant to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

To help the community to put on events to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, charity groups, not for profit organisations and schools are being invited to apply for a grant from Weymouth Town Council.

A maximum of £500 per group is available to meet the costs of community events over the special bank holiday weekend (Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June 2022).

A diverse range of applications will be considered, but examples of events that could be eligible for this funding include community parties, picnics, flower shows, and exhibitions or displays.

This money will not be able to fund street parties in residential streets, however if a community group wished to hold a street party style event in a community hall/space/outdoor green then this may be considered.

Grants are not available for commercial events.

Cllr Huckle, Mayor of Weymouth Town Council, said: “This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne and we want to make sure that our communities are able to come together to celebrate this very special occasion. We hope to be able to support a wide range of events taking place over the special bank holiday weekend.”

If you’re interested in applying for a grant, the grant policy and application form can be found here.

Applications close at 4pm on Friday 8th April.
