‘Summer with your neighbours’ fund open for applications

Our local Community Board initiated Neighbourhood Week back in 1998. Now known as ‘Summer with your neighbours’, this is an opportunity to apply to the Council for funding to support a local gathering. Applications are open from today until 16 August, and funding can be used from 25 October right through to late March 2020. Last year’s funding allocations ranged from $20 to $200.
