The Councillor’s Community Grants Scheme gives local Councillors discretion to award grants of between £250 and £1000, up to total of £3000, to support local projects or initiatives within their Wards.

The scheme is intended to fund projects that improve local communities through:

• Environmental benefits;
• Healthier lifestyles and activities;
• Support for disadvantaged people;
• Supporting economic development;
• Community engagement;
• Capacity building; or
• Other community benefit.

Community groups and voluntary organisations supporting local communities are invited to apply directly to the Ward Councillor for the area where their project is based. The Councillor will make an initial assessment of the merits of the scheme and, subject to the application meeting certain criteria, will then decide whether to approve funding.

The grants awarded from my budget were:

£500 towards the Christmas lights switch on ceremony; £896.82 to Herne Farm Pre-school; £654.93 to The Kings Arms; £500 to the Rotherlands Conservation Group; £448.25 to the Good Life Petersfield Community Garden.
