COMMUNITY PROJECTS FUND
Meltham Town Council Community Projects Fund. At a meeting of Meltham Town Council on Monday evening, members unanimously agreed to approve a scheme designed to provide grant funding to local organisations and groups for community based capital projects. £250,000 has been put aside to provide funding over a five year term, allocating up to £50,000 per year. The pot of money has been amassed following the sale of land at the Robert Ashton Memorial Park back in the late 90’s and then successfully invested by the Council to produce a substantial sum.
