Local Funding for Community Groups

At the Parish Council meeting on Monday evening Borough Councillor John Leather reported that there were still funds available for local organisations from the Local Member's Budget. He asked the Parish Council to advertise this fact as widely as possible.

Each financial year a sum of money from CW&C's income is allocated to each councillor to be spent within their constituency. The sum allocated last year was £5,000 per councillor. It is recognised that Councillors know their areas well and have better knowledge of local needs than Council officers at Headquarters. The amounts of money that can be awarded may be modest but can make quite a difference to individual groups. Tarvin Community Centre has recently received help from this source to provide a new sound system and to improve the car park.

Any community organisation within the Tarvin Parish can apply for some funding. As the money comes ultimately from Council Tax payers there are some formalities needed but these are not difficult to complete. So if there are any organisations in our Parish who feel that they might benefit from a grant they should contact either John Leather — 01829 752558 or john.leather@chshirewestandchester.gov.uk — or Hugo Deynem — 01829 751830 or www.hugo.deynam@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk

This money is given to benefit the locality and it would be great to see it benefiting Tarvin Parish.
