This year the District Council has renewed the grant funding for local projects with funds awarded through the local District Councillors. This is a fund of £4,500 per Councillor and grant awards can be from £100 to £1,000.
In past years we have supported Horndean Football Club, Butser Home Start (for struggling young families), Merchistoun Hall, New Blendworth Center, the War Memorial restoration and many more local causes.
Over the next 6 to 8 months all 5 District Councillors are looking for opportunities to support clubs and worthwhile causes in the community and for the right projects we are very pleased to pool some of our funding.
Here are some of the guidelines on the types of project that might quality:
• Environmental benefits;
• Healthier lifestyles and activities;
• Support for disadvantaged people;
• Supporting economic development;
• Community engagement;
• Capacity building; or
• Other community benefit.
All of us support Horndean Parish Council too with funding for improvement on the play areas, new planting or benches in our wards.
To find out more then please email your ward Councillor below. If you are not sure what ward you are in then any one of us will point you in the right direction to the right Councillor.
