Small grants available

Poors Land: Grants Available
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 annually by the Parish Council. These small grants are distributed every December, in time for Christmas. The amounts given are usually around £50. Application forms have to be returned by 30th November. The forms may be collected from the Cottam Room at the Victoria Institute or obtained directly from the Parish Clerk on 07882 949110 or email
