Wandle Forum has announced the return of the small grants scheme to support community led events activities during Wandle fortnight starting on September 14.

“We’re delighted to announce the return of the small grants scheme to support free community-led events and activities run during Wandle Fortnight in September.  Let us know your plans by July 21st and you can apply for a grant for between £50 and £250. If you don’t want a grant and are running an event or activity during Wandle Fortnight then don’t forget to register it – details below,” said a spokesperson.

Wandle Fortnight grants

To apply for a grant you need to follow these three steps:

1.  Decide on what you are going to do during Wandle Fortnight – just about anything goes providing it is for the community, happening during Wandle Fortnight, free and taking place somewhere in the Wandle Valley Regional Park (map here)

2.  Complete the Wandle Fortnight grant application form providing details and what you need the funding for – this should take no more than fifteen minutes.  Download the application form below and send it back by 21 July at the latest

3.  Report on your event or activity afterwards by sending some photos, providing a link to your website or social media or writing a short article or blog

Our thanks to The Collective for the support that makes this programme possible.
