Application for Grants 2021 & 2022
Following a successful first year trading at Bledington Community Shop and Café, we are looking for local community projects requiring support.

Bledington Primary School: £500, to be matched by Bledington School Association, for additional books, not covered by public funds, that will benefit the entire school
St Leonard’s Church: £1,000, as a special one-off grant towards post-Covid 19 repair and maintenance of the fabric of the building as a historic village asset
Bledington Music Festival: £1,500, to assist this registered charity to promote and market relaunching the Festival in 2022, following the costly cancellations of 2020 and 2021.
We will usually consider grant applications twice annually.
