Invitation to apply for council grants to make Honiton a better place to live

Applications are invited by Honiton Town Council to apply for funding to boost community projects.

The council’s annual grants are awarded to community groups or organisations working for the good of the residents and town.

Applications are now being taken until the November 21 deadline, ahead of council consideration later this year.

Last year thousands of pounds were granted by the council to organisations and groups such as Devon Freewheelers, Relate Honiton and Citizens Advice East Devon.

Grants can be used towards the purchase of materials or equipment, or to boost a service that makes Honiton a better place to live.

Mark Tredwin, town council clerk, said: “Previously the council has awarded grants to a range of organisations to help them in their work.”

Applications can be submitted for any amount up to £5,000, although the town council can consider higher sums on an individual basis.

In 2018 Honiton Town Council awarded grants totalling £10,030 to 11 community projects and groups.

Action East Devon was awarded £2,750 to create a new website for Honiton Health Matters.

Honiton 55+ Centre received £800 to help pay for a new commercial dishwasher.

Leaders of 1064 Squadron Honiton ATC received £500 towards the cost of the cadets’ visit to D-Day beaches in France.
