Vote for your favourite - Community Grant Giving


The latest round of our CWaC Members' Community Grants is now live.  

You have until 9 February to decide which groups will have a share of the £4,000 grant pot.  
Please click on the link:

http://rural.yourwestcheshire.co.uk/pages/3046/1/Frodsham_Community_Ideas_Fund.html

and then the applicants link at the bottom of that page to see the projects and their presentations.

I've viewed all of the presentations and several of them made me smile!  It is great to see the enthusiasm and the creativity.

When you click through you'll find the following:

1. Frodsham Sings

The great thing about community grant giving in Frodsham, as always, is that it is the community itself that decides who gets the money.  The last event attracted more than 1,500 voters - lets see if we can beat that total this time.

A big thank you to Life through the Lens and Frodsham Town Council for their support for this event too.
