Battle Town Council are conscious that many of our local businesses and services have suffered as a consequence of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and understand that there have been many additional costs associated with making premises and services Covid secure.
Battle Town Council are keen to support local businesses and organisations through these tough times and have put aside a sum of £10,000 from General Reserves to be awarded in grants of up to £500. These grants are to assist with additional expenditure incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic or to provide special services that will benefit the residents of our civil parish during recovery from the pandemic.
Examples of additional expenditure include purchase of easy-clean toys for playgroups; purchase of safety equipment for businesses; provision of meals for those in need; school holiday activities; extra or special equipment for organisations offering support.
To qualify for a grant, an organisation or business must first complete a grant application form and submit it to the Town Clerk. The applicant must be able to demonstrate that any funding provided by the Town Council will be of benefit to the civil parish, its residents or visitors.
