Cirencester Town Council has launched its grant fund for 2020-2021 with £11,000 available to local individuals, businesses and organisations.

They can apply for the grant for projects which directly benefit the local community of Cirencester through environmental, social or economic well-being.

Applications open on Wednesday and close at 4pm on Friday, September 11.

In recognising the long-term commitment of many charities and organisations in the town, the council will also consider applications for year on year funding up to a maximum of four years.

Grants will be awarded by the council in November and made available in December.
