Over £300k to boost culture, history and heritage

Non-profit community organisations across Tewkesbury borough are invited to apply for funding.

A total of £356,330 has been made available to support schemes across the borough through the UK Shared Prosperity and Rural England Prosperity Fund grant schemes.

Tewkesbury Borough Council will be distributing capital funding received through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Rural England Prosperity Fund through two grant schemes, to enhance cultural, historical and heritage institutions and also to improve the energy efficiency of community buildings.

Applications for both grant schemes are now open on the Tewkesbury Borough Council website and close at 9am on Friday May 24.

Cllr Cate Cody, lead member for the community at Tewkesbury Borough Council, said: "These two grant schemes are exciting opportunities for our local communities. With over £350,000 of grant funding available, we want to see as many non-profit groups and organisations benefitting as possible.

"The funding has the potential to enhance culture and showcase the rich history and heritage within our borough, as well as promoting community pride and energy efficiency.

"I'm very much looking forward to seeing the positive impact that this grant funding will have across the borough."
