This year HM Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating an amazing 70 years on the throne.

To support our community to celebrate Rudheath and Witton Together are offering a small grant  to organised street parties in the RWT area over the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.

Who will we give funding to?
The Platinum Jubilee Fund is offering grants which must be spent in our RWT community towards properly organised street parties which celebrate the Platinum Jubilee – people who benefit from the grant must live in the area defined by Big Local. Please see the RWT area map here.

(Please note this includes the new development on Shipbrook Road, which is not shown on the map). If unsure please contact us and we’ll confirm if you are in the Big Local area.

 

How much can we ask for?

The Jubilee grant is for one-off grants to support people to hold community street parties, up to a maximum of £150. Although you can apply for a smaller amount depending on what you are planning to do.

The grant can be used towards the following items:

  • Cost of Public Liability Insurance (from £59)

  • Equipment – such as plates, bunting, napkins etc.

  • Additional costs on road closures, such as traffic management

  • Food/drinks (not alcohol)

 

Deadlines

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Thursday 21st April 2022 or when the grant budget is spent (whichever comes first).

More information, the application form and the grant terms and conditions can be found here.

Remember, only activities which primarily benefit residents in the Rudheath & Witton area can be considered.
