Financial Support and Donations

The Town Council welcome applications from the Community for financial support. However, the application must be from a bone fide group, or committee, that at least one or more of the Councillors’ are aware of. There are strict guidelines that the Town Council must adhere to, when considering and granting financial support. Financial support is also granted to organisations and charitable institutions outside the Council area, but these applications must in some way benefit the community.

The Minutes of the Town Council ( see separate web pages ), provide full details of all applications for financial support, that have been granted by the Council. The Minutes also show the various accounts paid by the Council. Further details in respect of applying for financial support from the Town Council, or any other financial information, can be obtained from the Clerk and Financial Officer - as per the contact details below.
