Community Grants for Church Minshull

Home » News » Community Grants

What's the offer?

Each year, Church Minshull Parish Council makes a budget provision of funds that may be used to provide financial assistance for community improvements and activities. Although the financial value of such assistance is generally small — usually no more than a few hundred pounds — this can make a tremendous difference locally. These small grants have previously helped to support the Sports and Social Club, the repairs to the church clock and improvements to the Village Hall.

An application for a Parish Council Small Grant can be made by a recognised group, club, committee or as an individual or local group of individuals and should demonstrate that the money will directly benefit residents of the parish of Church Minshull. Applications can be submitted throughout the year although as budgets are being set now for 2018/19 it might be worth considering opportunities early.

Please contact any council member should you have any questions or need advice on completing the application form.

The small print:

Applications, using the form attached to this page or from the Parish Council pages, must be received three weeks before a Parish Council Meeting in order for the Grant to be included on the Agenda. The Parish Council may approve the full grant as applied for, or recommend a partial grant against the requested amount, based upon a deliberation of the recognised benefit to the community. It should be noted and accepted that the Parish Council are under no defined obligation to accept or honour, in part or full, any grant application.

Applicants for a Small Grant should read and agree the Parish Council's terms and conditions and all grant requests must be submitted on the Council's Small Grant application form.
