Voluntary and community groups in need of support are urged to apply for a grant from Daventry District Council (DDC).
The Council's voluntary and community sector grant programme can help groups make improvements to community buildings, put on fundraising events, pay for new equipment and cover training costs or expenses for volunteers.
Groups can apply for up to £15,000 to cover up to half the cost of a capital building project, up to £1,000 for community projects, equipment, training or expenses, and up to £500 to help organise a community fundraising event. More »
Additional funding for capital projects in Daventry has recently been made available and groups are invited to apply now.
Recent beneficiaries of the grants programme include: Hannington Village Hall, which received £1,000 for refurbishment work; Weedon Bec Pre-School, awarded £813 for new computer equipment; and Cold Ashby Playing Fields Association, which is installing a new outdoor gym with the help of a £1,000 grant.
Ian Vincent, Chief Executive at Daventry District Council, said: "We're pleased to support dozens of community organisations each year through our grants programme and I would urge representatives of groups across our District to find out more about the range of funding on offer and submit their applications."

Following the major flood caused by the burst 21" water main some weeks ago the path has been inspected by the reinstatement personnel from utility companies, the insurers, Anglian Water and Highways. Highways also included inspection of the road in Broadlands, Manor Road and Grange Lane and noted damage to pathways, roads and driveway entrances where sand was washed out or stones lifted. They have been given the names of the property owners affected. More »
Anglian Water have now closed off the footpath until they return, hopefully, on Tuesday 10th to put down a base of material safe to walk on. This will later be covered by another surface in keeping with the conservation area (not tarmac).
If you have suffered damage to your property please contact the Parish Clerk Maureen Holliday to check that your damage is on the list of works noted.
