Community Grants Scheme

 Following the success of last year’s S137 Grant Funding Scheme, which saw almost £15,000 allocated in the area, Spennymoor Town Council is pleased to announce the launch of a new Community Grants Scheme which will be open for applications from 1st April 2019.

This new scheme, which totals £19,000, is in three parts.

Firstly the Council has automatically allocated £9,300 of the fund to organisations it supports every year such as the Town Band, Heritage Banner Group, Gala Committee, Drum Head Service and British Legion (Remembrance Parade), as well as community events such as the annual Bus Trip.

The second part of the fund is up to £5000 worth of room hire at the Town Hall which community groups and charities can take advantage of.  In order to take apply for free room hire, please contact the Facilities Manager in writing, giving details of your organisation, what resources you would require, and why.

This leaves £4,700 for grants which will be available in the sums of up to £100 for an individual, and up to £500 for a community organisation.  In order to apply for these funds, please contact the Town Hall for an application form and guidance.  Please read the guidance carefully, as applications which do not meet the criteria will not be put before the Council for consideration.

All funds, in whichever category, must be used for the benefit of the residents of the Spennymoor area, including Middlestone Moor, Tudhoe, Kirk Merrington and Byers Green.
