The Parish Council has an annual Community Grants budget of £6,000 which is used to help support local charities and voluntary groups each year with funding to enable them to carry out projects and activities for the benefit of local residents. The grants are awarded three times a year by the Community Development Committee where presentations are given by the charities to the committee before any decision is made.
The Community Development Committee met on the Tuesday 7th June 2022 and agreed to award a grant of £3,000.00 to AFC Haydon Vale. The grant will be used to fund set up costs and deliver grassroots football at Trent Road.
AFC Haydon Vale has expressed their thanks to the Council for the grant by having this to say:
“The whole committee, its coaches and members would like to thank the Parish Council for awarding us the grant as it will help us to move forward with our project. We look forward to seeing members of the community on Sunday mornings cheering us along!”
