Does your group or organisation need cash? If so get your applications in for Community Matters funding by 31 December 2016. The £100,000 has been divided into 5 Wards i.e. £20,000 per ward; Alva and Tillicoultry are together in a ward so approx. £10,000 each. Application forms are available at http://www.clacksweb.org.uk/community/communitymatters/. Successful applicants must spend the money by 31 March 2017.
Each ward or town is having a ‘Decision Event’ and Alva’s will be Sat 21 January in Alva Parish Church Hall, 10am to 12 noon. The Alva groups that apply for funding are to set up their stall at the event and pitch to members of the public who will listen to all presentations before casting their vote(s). The video below shows a typical decision event.
