A number of Community Councils around Blackcraig windfarm are now receiving £2,000 per year to be distributed through ‘micro-grants’. This week sees the launch of the Corsock & Kirkpatrick Durham Community Council micro-grant scheme.
Awards of up to £500 to organisations and £250 to individuals will be considered, for projects for charitable purposes to the general benefit of local residents. These must primarily benefit residents of the Corsock & Kirkpatrick Durham Community Council area. A map of the Community Council boundary, which includes Old Bridge of Urr and Knockvennie, is here: https://info.dumgal.gov.uk/CommunityCouncils/Home/Detail/50
The application form is available online through the Corsock Village Hall Blog (here: https://corsockhall.wixsite.com/home/post/corsock-kpd-grants-apply-today) with details on how it should be returned by the application deadline of 31 October 2019. Alternatively, the application form can be sought from any member of the community council.
Corsock & Kirkpatrick Durham Community Council Chairman, Joe Seed, said:
“The Community Council members are keen that the micro-grant scheme be available and accessible to everyone in our area and so please highlight this in your networks. Applications are welcomed from groups or individuals by 31 October 2019.”
