Before making your application please read the Small Grants Scheme policy and make sure you answer all of the questions on the application form as fully and accurately as possible.  Please send the completed application form to the Town Clerk if you would like to apply for a grant.  All applications are scored against set criteria by a panel of elected members.  If you have any questions please do ask; you can email Gill Gray at townclerk@westgateonsea.gov.uk.
