   Community College youth initiative gets Jubilee funding    7 March, 2012

)(Article provided by www.grobyonline.tk - Last October the Parish Council discussed the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and decided to look at setting some money aside to support any village organisation that wished to organise an event as part of the celebrations.  Organisers were invited to give advance notice  of any events they planned in order that a diary could be maintained to help others making similar plans avoid date conflicts.  When it set the budget for 2012/13 the Council set aside £1500 to help fund Jubilee events but surprisingly with only a few months to go no-one has responded to the invitation.  With no apparent demand for assistance in financing an event the Council has decided to allocate £1000 of the provision to help a local good cause in need of funding in Jubilee Year.
