Grants for Sports and Leisure in Bridgwater

Posted on 7th March, 2018 in News

Calling all community groups, sports clubs or schools – Sport and leisure funding now available

Any community group, sports club or school from Bridgwater can apply for a project grant, provided they can meet at least one of the criteria and are within the eligible area. Successful projects and schemes must seek to increase participation in sport and physical activity.

Groups are being encouraged to make sure they benefit from a £500k fund given to Sedgemoor District Council by EDF Energy as part of its plans to build Hinkley Point C.

This scheme is known as the Sports and Leisure Fund, which was set up to support community improvements to mitigate the impacts on local sports and leisure facilities and recreational open space in Sedgemoor from the building of Hinkley Point C.  This is the second round of grants.

SASP (Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership) has been commissioned by Sedgemoor District Council to organise two community briefing events at the YMCA, Friarn Avenue, Bridgwater, TA6 3RS, so that any interested groups can get information and advice.

These events will be held on:

  • Thursday 22nd March, 2018 between 1830 hrs and 200 hrs or
  • Tuesday 27th March, 2018  between 1830 hrs and 200 hrs

The meetings aim to:

  • Explain the criteria for potential bids and discuss individual projects.
  • Explain the bidding process and timelines.

If you would like to attend either of the meetings, please e-mail stating your name and organisation represented to Colin Johnson cjohnson@sasp.co.uk by Monday 19th March, so as to judge numbers likely to attend.
