Almost £2,800 for community projects
AN ARTS project, homeless charity and allotment group are among the winners in the latest town council grants.
Macclesfield Town Council has been recognising community groups and events by approving another batch of grants for local projects.
This included £680 for the Byrons Lane Allotments Association to cut back overhanging trees, £1,600 for Macclesfield Community Artspace to provide a stage for a street theatre re-enactment and £500 for charity Treehouse to run an event for homeless and vulnerable people in Macclesfield.
A town council spokesman said: “If you’re holding an event or launching a project which will benefit people who live in Macclesfield and you require additional funding to help make your project a success, we encourage you to apply for town council community grants.”
Requests for small grants up to £250 and large grants up to £2,000 are considered at regular Finance Committee meetings. They can be applied for by downloading forms from macclesfield-tc.gov.uk.
