Westbury Area Board has grant funding available for local projects and Community Engagement Manager Graeme Morrison is inviting applications from organisations with project ideas which need some support to get up and running.
Graeme said “We have 3 separate pots of money available to local groups. If you have a project or an idea which could do with some financial support, please get in touch with me. I am happy to discuss any ideas.”
The three different grant pots are outlined below:
