Community grants

LERWICK Community Council is inviting applications from voluntary organisations based in the town to bid for funding of up to £2,000.

The community council said funding from the Scottish Government plus two years of council development grants has created a fund worth £10,000 that was now being made available to Lerwick based groups.

Chairman Jim Anderson said: “Any group and/or organisation based in Lerwick or any project that will directly benefit Lerwick can bid for funds, up to a maximum of £2,000.”

Application forms will be available from 16 March.

Applicants and members of the local community are invited to a ‘participatory budgeting event’ to be held at the Islesburgh Community Centre on 21 May to vote on how and where this money is spent.
