Small grants to help communities celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 are now available.
West Lindsey District Council has launched a new fund, The Platinum Jubilee Community Fund to support celebration projects across the district, marking Her Majesty The Queen’s historic reign.
Community groups, charities and parish/town councils can apply to the fund for a maximum grant of £700 for organising events and projects.
The news has been welcomed by Cllr Owen Bierley, Leader of West Lindsey District Council. He said: “West Lindsey is delighted to launch this new grant fund which will really help communities celebrate this momentous occasion.
“We hope it will enable communities to come together to celebrate, and build on the legacy of the relationships and connections we have developed throughout COVID-19. Depending on the project, the grant fund could pay for the full cost of the event or project. I am looking forward to all the celebrations and joining in a couple myself.”
The scheme is open to a wide variety of organisations as long as project is for wider community benefit. The final closing date for all applications is Sunday, 15 May 2022. The Council will review applications within four weeks and the fund may close earlier if all the funding has been allocated.
To apply visit the council’s grants and funding webpages where the full criteria and guidance notes are available. Then download an application form and submit it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The Council, which launched its Environment, Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy earlier this year is encouraging schools and community groups to apply for three million free saplings. The saplings are available on a first come first served basis through the Woodland Trust.
Planting trees and protecting forests are simple, cost effective ways to slow climate change, filter our air, enhance our communities and provide habitats for wildlife.
The Woodland Trust is offering the free tree packs for schools and community groups and you can find out more by visiting The Woodland Trust website.
