Applications for Funding from the Community Fund 
Update -30th August 2021
2021 Grant Applications are now open via the link at bottom of this page. Please note that closing date is October 31st 2021 (10pm).

The funding is made up of two components: 
1. A generous donation of £7,500 provided by Festival Republic, and 
2. The sale of 250 Leeds Festival tickets to local residents heavily discounted by Festival Republic for residents only

Total funds are thus limited to £18,500 per year. Although this is a generous annual contribution to our community, it must first cover any losses from the festival shuttle bus service, and thereafter cover as many applications as possible from the entire parish. Please bear this total in mind when submitting your application.
