Culture, sport, recreation, health, environment and community safety projects that benefit the local community could receive funding from Swale Borough Council’s member grants.

Every year, the council provides each of Swale’s 47 councillors with £2,400 to spend on small-scale local projects that benefit their community.

Local voluntary and community groups can apply to one or more councillors for funding and could have all, or part, of their project funded, and this year the council is welcoming any projects that address the challenges caused by the cost of living crisis.

Last year, Sunny Bank Primary School in Sittingbourne received £1,210 for outdoor cooking equipment, Brogdale CIC received £200 towards the restoration of a walled garden in Faversham, and Faversham Pools received £2,200 towards a robotic pool cleaner.

Queenborough and District Naval Ensign Association also received £750 for the Wildfire 3 memorial parade, and Minster Cricket Club received £1,150 towards a new equipment store.

Member grants are available every year from July to January.
