As part of its celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Crowan Parish Council has created a £1,000 Jubilee Fund from which it will award grants towards local celebrations.

Applications are welcome from community groups that are planning events in the parish that are open to all of the parish’s residents. Requests from individuals will not be considered.

Applicants will be required to tell the council about the organisation making the request, show evidence that an event is being planned and held in Crowan parish, and say what the money will be used for.

Grants will not be given for the purchase of alcohol, and applicants should demonstrate a community benefit and that their aim is not to make a profit.

Apply by email to the Parish Clerk, who will send you a short form to complete.
