Funding given out at Chanctonbury Local Committee

Worthy causes and local community benefit from funding grants.


Release date: 23 September 2016

Community projects, good causes and charities in Chanctonbury have benefitted from grants given out a recent meeting.

Chanctonbury County Local Committee met on 7 September to award funding to three groups.

Partridge Green Youth Football Club received £2,367.20 towards replacing and installing equipment stores.

Storrington Rotary Club received £1,000 for equipment and facilities for three days at Lodge Hill.

Age UK Horsham received £200 to part fund event costs.

Previously funding was given for several information boards around Steyning.

The boards aim to educate passers-by of different Steyning features, with the first commemorating the group of men who served the Home Guard at Steyning Rifle Range during the Second World War.

The information board also remembers a local resident who tragically died in a shelling accident in 1944, with others injured in the blast.

The incident made the national news at the time.

David Barling, Chanctonbury County Local Committee member, said: “Our Community Initiative Funding is there to help good, local causes and to benefit the community.

“I was delighted to see the completion of the information boards, which will be very useful in showing the history and character of our local area.

“If you have a community or charitable project, or a worthy cause please get your applications for funding in.”

Lionel Barnard, Chanctonbury County Local Committee member, said: “The funding we have given to Partridge Green Youth Football Club should help to enable our young people to get active and enjoy being part of a team in a safe environment.

“Without this funding, the club might not have been able to continue serving the local community.

“I look forward to seeing the new facilities at the club.”
