Grants of up to £5,000 are on offer to community groups and individuals to fund a project in Sidley.

The Heart of Sidley wants to hear from people interested in setting up a new club or social enterprise to hand out some of its £1m funding.

There is only a small amount of criteria to meet, for instance the idea must benefit the residents of Sidley, not just one individual. And the grants are match funding grants which means more funds must be applied for but the Heart of Sidley will help organise that.

Above all else applicants must be passionate and have a vision that matches the vision to make Sidley a proud community in 10 years.

For more information or guidance call team assistant Audrey Pinnington on 01424 728041 or project coordinator Victoria Ferguson on 01424 728042.
