Parish Council Grants
The Parish Council allocates a small amount of its precept (income) each year to provide grants to voluntary organizations in the Parish who are in need of voluntary support. With the start of the new financial year approaching, the Parish Council would like any organization who would like to be considered for a grant to apply in writing to the Clerk no later than FRIDAY MARCH


This year, the Council has some extra income generated from the New Homes Bonus that it wishes to use for the benefit of the community.
For the Parish Council to approve a grant the organization must show that:

  • The activity of the group benefits a wide range of Tarvin residents, or, if restricted to a certain group, the valid reasons for those restrictions
  • That other sources of funding have been approached, and reasons for any rejections given
  • The group has a reasonable current and future financial position

Grants awarded are not large and the Parish Council does not restrict the spending of the money. However the Parish Council do require that they receive a written report from the group on how the money has been spent, along with a copy of the accounts showing the grant as a separate item.
Please address applications for the grants to Mike Hassall, Roy Cottage, Townfield Lane, Tarvin CH3 8EG or e-mail or call him on 01829 741075 if you have any queries
