First published in News

VOLUNTARY and community groups in Chard are being encouraged to apply for grants of up to £1,000 to fund new projects or enhance current activities or facilities.

The cash from Chard Town Council’s Community Development Fund will go towards organisations providing maximum benefit to people within the town.

A council spokesman said: “The council is seeking to support many different kinds of projects such as staging a one-off event, funding a pilot or one-off project or the purchase of new equipment.

“The scheme looks to support smaller scale groups with capital projects, but in certain circumstances will now also consider revenue items too.”

Applicants will be expected to match fund part of the project costs with their own resources and supply financial statements and estimates where appropriate.

The closing date for applications is Friday, September 26 and awards will be made during October.

For an application form go to www.chard.gov.uk or call the council on 01460-239567.
