Council approves sixteenth grant to local groups in the past year
Weymouth Town Council’s Finance & Governance Committee has approved its sixteenth grant to local groups, taking the amount of funding approved to nearly £30,000.
The town council have grants available for community, voluntary or charitable organisations to support their work in the community. Eligible groups can use the grants for a range of purposes, including funding new projects, buying necessary equipment, events, or training.
The latest grant was awarded to Greenhill Bowling Club to help with refurbishment works.
Cllr David Gray, Chair of the Finance & Governance Committee, said:
“Huge congratulations to Greenhill Bowling Club, we hope the extra funding helps provide top class facilities for the clubs players and visitors to the area. Can there be a bowling club with a better view in the whole of England?”
“We are proud to have now allocated sixteen grants in the past year to local groups, totalling over £26,000. I hope more local groups will apply to the grant pot of £50,000 that launches in April this year. The process is simple and the funding available quickly. It could be a lifeline for local groups looking to start up again after Covid, when it’s safe for them to do so.”
“The form itself is easy to fill in and our staff can help with this. Groups can access up to £2,000 for a project and we hope to see many groups applying in the coming months.”
