What is the Platinum Jubilee Grant?
South Norfolk Council has established a new grant to support Parish councils across the district to organise a celebratory event during the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend of 2nd to 5th June 2022.
What will the Platinum Jubilee Grant support?
The grant will be available to help towards the costs that may occur when organising Platinum Jubilee events for the community. Parish councils are eligible to apply for the grant and must demonstrate the funds are to support the provision of an event for residents. Successful applicants will be required to provide a short summary of the event with photographs after it has taken place for promotional purposes. Parish Councils will be able to apply for a £200 grant to cover costs.
If the Parish Council is not holding an event themselves, they can still apply for funding which can passed onto a local group or organisation who are organising an event on the Platinum Jubilee Weekend. This should be stated on the application form and the group/organisation may still be asked to provide receipts and event analysis.
Who is eligible to apply for the Platinum Jubilee grant?
All Parish Councils in South Norfolk are eligible to apply for the Platinum Jubilee grant. The grants will be awarded on receipt of a completed application form and only one grant per council.
How do I apply for the Platinum Jubilee grant?
If you are organising an event in Surlingham for the community over the Jubilee weekend and want to apply for a grant, contact the Parish Council via ‘Contact us’ on this website or contact the Clerk on 538921 and explain what you are planning. The Parish Council will apply for the grant on your behalf.
Applications to the Parish Council by 31 March 2022. Please note that payments will be made in April 2022.
