Community Grants are back!!!

If you are a member of a group or organisation in Monmouth it is highly likely that you will have come across the Monmouth Town Council Grant Scheme that is in place to provide funds for specific projects that benefit Monmouth. 

The Town Council will fund up to 75% of a project but as this is the second tranche for this financial year the amount available is reduced. That being said, there is still approximately £9000 available so it’s certainly worth making an application.

Furthermore more, the application process is now OPEN! We welcome all applications for funds before the deadline which is 12 noon on 31st October 2019.

In addition, applicants will be able to present their project to the Community Affairs Committee and will be invited to attend a presentation evening the week commencing 4th November 2019.  This is not compulsory but if you would like the opportunity to further promote your project please let Monmouth Town Council know.  

If you are interested in making an application or require further information, please contact Monmouth Town Council on 01600 715662 or on townclerk@monmouth.gov.uk.  The application forms and guidance notes are available below

Good luck

Planter Vandalism

Unfortunately, this weekend has seen 2 incidents of vandalism on some of the planters in Monmouth. On both Saturday and Sunday morning, 3 planters within town were found tipped upside down with the contents on the pavement. These planters were opposite Drybridge House and in front of the sculpture by the Old Monnow Bridge. Furthermore, the bedding plants on the Old Monnow Bridge had been pulled up and thrown across the road. If anyone knows or saw anything please get in touch with the Town Council on 01600 715662. Many thanks
