Funding is available for local groups seeking financial support to organise an event with a view to strengthening community relations through to Banbridge District Council’s Community Festival Fund.
The council will support a range of cultural, sporting or music events organised by constituted community groups provided they are held within the district and promote social cohesion and inclusion, equality of opportunity and good relations.
Events should also promote a positive image of the district as well as increase visitor numbers to the area.
Community groups must demonstrate evidence of their ability to part fund the event with a view to becoming self sustaining, and no other government funding is helping to support the event.
The second tranche of funding is available to groups who wish to hold events between September and December 2013. The closing date for submitting completed applications is Friday, August 30, at 5pm.
Application forms can be obtained from Banbridge District Council, Civic Building, Downshire Road, Banbridge or www.banbridge.gov.uk.
