Angus Councillor David Fairweather has announced the latest list of local groups and organisations to benefit from cash grants from Angus Council.
Speaking at a meeting of the council’s Infrastructure services committee Fairweather urged groups to take advantage of the funding, adding: “As this latest round of grants show, funding is available to local groups for a wide variety of purposes and I am delighted that the council is continuing to support local communities in this way.
“Advice and support is available from the council for groups who are considering an application, either through the website or from the specialists in our external funding team, and I would urge community groups to consider making an application.”
Local organisations on the list supplied to the Review are: Montrose Stroke Club - £386 towards the hire of a bus and the purchase of a bingo machine; Hope Paton Bowling Club - £400 towards the purchase of rink markers; Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre - £3047 towards purchase of computers, software and chairs; and Scottish Wildlife Trust - £1800 towards the design and supply of wildlife information boards.
As incomplete or incorrect applications can delay the processing of grants, any organisation interested in applying for a community grant is urged to contact the council’s external funding team for advice and guidance before submitting a proposal.
The team can be contacted on 01307 473222. Advice is also available via the website at www.angus.gov.uk/externalfunding/communitygrant
