Grants awarded 23rd October 2019
Last year the town council awarded grants to almost 30 organisations for the purchase or equipment or to support a specific activity. The ages of those who will benefit from these grants range from the very young to the young at heart. We have supported sporting activities, music and arts, care and welfare. We have contributed to tackling such issues as loneliness and isolation through voluntary organisations who support the most vulnerable in our town.
We are always humbled by the dedicated and selfless volunteers who give so much to our community and we are committee to continuing our support.
