Deadline nearing for cash grant applications

COMMUNITY groups are being urged to apply for grants being handed out by Derbyshire County Council.

The next deadline for the Community Action Grant funding is on Friday January 27.

Derbyshire County Council cabinet member for public health Cllr Carol Hart said: “We’re very lucky to have some fantastic community groups in Derbyshire who do a lot for their local area, often with very little money.

“We know a Community Action Grant could make a real difference to the kind of services they can offer locally and that they know best about where funding can be used to provide the most benefit.”
