Local Kent County Councillor for Swale East, Andrew Bowles, is inviting members of the public to go along and help decide the winning applicants of grants of between £300 and £2,000 for local community projects. Each of the groups applying will have 3 minutes to pitch their bid and then all members of the public who attend can then vote on their proposals. Projects with the most votes will receive the funding from Cllr Bowles's allocation. Groups wishing to apply for funding MUST apply by Monday 25th January by email to: Members.Desk@kent.gov.uk. Members of the public are welcomed to come along to see the presentations and decision making on the day.
