In 1724, Edward Fincham left land to be used to benefit people in need living in this parish. The land is let out for grazing and fishing, and the proceeds are distributed by the Parish Council. Small grants are distributed every December. To apply, please fill in a simple application form. You can get it from the Parish Clerk (phone 07882 949110) or from the Victoria Institute in Caton. Copies are in the Cottam Room (formerly the library), or ask Peter Collins the Administrator. Forms must be returned to the Parish Clerk or to the Victoria Institute by 30th November.
