Morton Parish Council has £5,000 available each financial year to distribute to individuals, groups and organisations operating within the parish.
The purpose for the grant should usually be:
- to part fund events or activities that may only be viable, or can be significantly improved; or
- to part fund or fully fund the start-up costs of new events or activities; or
- to improve facilities available in Morton; or
- to improve the village’s appearance.
Instead of being for a grant, the application can be for the council to underwrite an event, so that the organisers are protected from a loss in the event of, for example, bad weather.
The council are more likely to be supportive of an application that aims to introduce something new to the village, such as a new activity, or aims to significantly improve something already offered, or which is for expenditure on equipment that will provide a benefit to the village for many years.
Please read the attached Grant Conditions for the full conditions.
