Cllr Barry Flux, business chair, said: “Community groups are often enthusiastic to do more to meet the needs of their communities, but lack of money is often a major obstacle for them.

"The community chest is a popular grant fund and is aimed at helping these hard-working groups finance worthwhile community causes.

"We have made it as simple as possible to apply for the grant, so please do get in touch if you think you have a project, we may be able to help you fund.”
