Grants for local groups

ANGUS Council wants more people to know about grants available for community and voluntary groups. Last year 83 applications were received, with nearly 80 per cent funded. This year, over £150,000 is available.

The External Funding Team is publicising the scheme. If you have not applied to the Community Grant Scheme before, or want to hear more, you are invited to one of two short presentation and question and answer sessions. In addition you will hear about what makes a successful funding application.

They are at Arbroath, Webster Memorial Theatre, Studio Room, May 1, 3 to 4.30pm; and Forfar, Angus House boardroom, May 2, 6 to 7.30pm. To book, contact Eddie Findlay on 01307 473264, or
