Community Grants

Following the Parish Council's Meeting on the 12th April 2017, the Members have agreed to allocate a sum of money which will be made available for Grants.  The deadline for receipt of applications in this first tranche of grants is 31st August 2017.  Any Grant applications received will be considered in the October 2017 Parish Council Meeting.

The Grant Awarding Policy and Grant Application Form were sent to David Crisfield at South Somerset District Council (SSDC)  during November 2017 to review the Parish Council's process.  Mr Crisfield suggested minor amendments to the existing policy wording and application form, to make the process clearer. 

Therefore, please click here for the revised Grant Awarding Policy, as at 7th December 2017 and the Grant Application Form, as at 7th December 2017.

Please send your Application Form, together with financials, to the Clerk by posting in the Winsham Parish Council's letter box, or by emailing to
