Financial Support and Donations

The Community Council welcome applications from the Community for financial support. However, the application must be from a bone fide group, or committee, that at least one or more of the Councillors’ are aware of. There are strict guidelines that the Community Council must adhere to, when considering and granting financial support. Financial support is also granted to organisations and charitable institutions outside the Council area, but these applications must in some way benefit the community.

The Minutes of the Community Council ( see separate web pages ), provide full details of all applications for financial support, that have been granted by the Council. The Minutes also show the various accounts paid by the Council.

Commencing from April 2022 the Community Council adopted a Financial Assistance Policy and application form. Please click on the below links:
