From July 1st 2019 VRG are introducing two new grant schemes and making changes to the existing Small Grant Scheme. 

The new schemes are for small and large community schemes which meet one or more of our Objectives and address challenges and opportunities for our Community. The Small Community scheme is for projects costing up to £5000 and the Large Community scheme as the name indicates is for more major projects. 

Applications can be considered from individuals, groups, and  organisations provided the benefits are for the Carron Valley and District Community as a whole. We are also replacing the existing small grant scheme with a Household Small Grant scheme with awards up to £500 and new rules on what is covered. 

The existing Children and Young People’s and Student Bursary schemes are unchanged.  

Please follow the links under VRG Grant Schemes on the home page to more information about the grants, guidelines, application forms etc.

Bird Cherry tree in flower

This is just a quick reminder that the first woodland volunteer day is this coming Saturday (8th June) from 10am until 1pm. We’ll be planting Bird Cherry trees and doing some general tidying up. Admittedly the weather forecast isn’t looking that great, but a warm welcome plus tea and coffee will be provided!

Also, for anybody who hasn’t yet had a share of the community wood fuel and wants some, 2m lengths of timber will be available for collection on the day.
