ORGANISATIONS in Ludlow or with a branch in the town have three months to apply for a grant.

To be eligible the work must provide some benefit to people living in the town.

But if this criteria is met Ludlow Town Council would welcome an application for support.

The call for applications has opened and will close at the end of the summer with the deadline on Friday, August 27 at 4pm.

But funds are limited and a decision about who gets the grants and how much, will be made by councillors.

A number of factors will be taken into account including the benefit and the financial status of the organisation making the bid.

There is no guarantee that a bid will be successful because of the level of demand. Grants can range to several thousands of pounds to larger organisations like the Assembly Rooms to just a few hundred pounds for smaller organisations.
