Grants on offer from district council


Community groups can still gain cash from East Lindsey District Council.

The council is staging workshops across the district for groups seeking funding through the district council’s Community Grant Schemes.

The Councillors’ Community Grant Scheme is for grants of up to £1,000, and the Large Community Grant Scheme up to £8,000.

Councillors’ Community Grants can be applied for at any time up to March 1, 2015 by contacting the relevant ward councillor.

The process is fast and straightforward and groups can request grants to support a wide variety of activities.

The Large Community Grant Scheme provides grants of up to £8,000. There are two funding rounds each year. Although the first funding round application has already passed, groups can still apply to round two by submitting a completed application before September 16, 2014.

Workshops will take place at Horncastle Sports Pavilion on Thursday June 26, 7.30pm-9pm; and Coningsby and Tattershall Lions Youth Centre, on Tuesday July 8, 7pm-9pm. Those wishing to attend are asked to contact the council first to book a place.
