Community Chest

Every year the Councillors are given £100,000 to fund groups and projects in the ward.
As we are nearing the end of the financial year it is time for all our local groups to start considering their bids for the coming April.
The spending of this is first passed through the Ward Advisory Board where local representatives advise the 3 Councillors on the bids received. We mainly aim to support bids that directly affect Longbridge residents but we also prefer bids that already have some funds or are likely to attract match funding once we have put some money in.
