Aylesbury Vale District Council’s New Homes Bonus Micro Grant awarded to WaddesdonParish Clerk
On behalf of the village the council has secured a grant from the Aylesbury Vale District Council’s New Homes Bonus Micro Grant Scheme. These are described as
An exciting development sees the introduction of a new NHB Micro Grant Funding Scheme which is open to voluntary and community sector organisations operating within a parish, as well as parish and town councils.
This community grant allows us to purchase tools & equipment that volunteers can use at village clean-up days, in cases of emergency and where we are performing work that requires those present to wear protective safety gear.
We are putting the grant towards the following items:
- General purpose Shovels and Brooms
- Portable Cleaning Equipment – these are portable jet-washes, very useful on bollards & signs.
- Protective Gloves (and Safety Eye-wear)
- Hi-Vis vests for volunteers to use during clean up days etc.
- Extending cleaning brushes that will allow us to better clean road side signs and lights
As part of our commitment to keeping the village tidy our next clean-up day is Saturday 21st April. We will be meeting at the Children’s Centre car park (Frederick Street) for a quick chat about what we are doing and then to split into groups and off to do some spring cleaning. Those wishing to come and join us should arrive around 10AM, we do expect to be out for several hours and you are most welcome to come and join us any time. During the day there will be updates on our Facebook page. And last but not least there will be hot and cold refreshments available.
As always everyone is welcome!
If you could please let the Clerk know you are interested in helping out that would be great.
