More than £20k in grant applications to be considered

MELKSHAM Area Board is to consider grants from local groups totalling £21,711 at the next meeting. 

The board will consider a total of 11 applications on Wednesday 15th April at 7pm at Semington Village Hall. They include:

Friends of St George’s School, Semington: Requested £4,675 for an adventure trail path project which would extend around the perimeter of the school’s field to enable play and recreation in the wetter, winter months.

• Melksham Community Area Partnership: Requested £993 for a mobile water bowser which volunteers can use to keep flowers, hanging baskets, new trees etc. watered during dry weather.

• Bulkington Village Hall: Requested £3,513 for floor repairs as the building was constructed in the 19th century, has solid walls which are very damp and require specialist damp proofing.

• Melksham Music Festival: Requested £1,583 to purchase electrical equipment for Melksham Party in the Park.

The Learning Curve: Requested £1,000 for IT equipment for introductory internet courses.

• Wiltshire Mind: Requested £984 for a new intercom system so people can safely access counselling outside of normal working hours.

Adventure Centre: Requested £5,000 for an improved drainage system. At present the drains will become blocked two to three times a year, which will limit the use of the building with fairly unpleasant consequences.

Melksham Community Area Partnership: Requested £960 for an addition of a joystick to the new CCTV system in Melksham to enable full use to be made of the system.

Melksham Seniors Forum: Requested £500 for equipment for older persons’ activities.
