According to the council, ideally there should be clear evidence of local need or demand for the proposed project or activity.

You will be able to give full details of your specific project on the application form.

Council running three grant funding schemes

The others are for applications for grant funding over £500 and applications for grant funding under £500.

The deadline for submission is 5pm on Tuesday, November 1 2022 and all applications should be returned to the town clerk at Ledbury Town Council offices in Church Street.
