St Mellion Parish Council Community Grant Scheme
St Mellion Parish Council has set up a ‘Community Grant Scheme’ using the £25k compensation payment received from the developers of the Newton Ferrers solar farm.
The scheme is intended to assist projects run by community and voluntary groups in St Mellion parish and can be used to support a range of activities (e.g. community facilities, local environment projects, etc.).
Grants of £100 to £5,000 are available for individual projects and can be used to ‘match fund’ financial support from other sources.
For further information, please contact the Parish Clerk on 07878 368857 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
