Annual Parish Meeting 2017

Grants are awarded at the Parish Council’s Annual Parish Meeting held this year in March at Chalford Sports & Social Club.   Click here for a full list of 2017-18 grant recipients.

This year the Annual Parish Meeting was held at Chalford Sports & Social Club in March and we used the opportunity to launch the 6 week consultation of the Chalford Parish Design Statement – a document written by the local community describing the distinctive characteristics of the locality, and providing design guidance to influence future development and improve the physical qualities of an area. Elin Tattersall from Gloucestershire Rural Community Council gave a presentation explaining the document and answered parishioners’ questions.

Other Grant Providers

There are two other local charities in the area that provide small grants:

The John Taylor Foundation

The Foundation was set up in accordance with the Will of John Taylor dated 19th January 1732, and its endowment is open to young people who reside in the Parishes of Bisley, Bussage, Chalford, France Lynch and Oakridge – The Ancient Parish of Bisley.

The Charity for the Ancient Parish of Bisley

The Charity of the Ancient Parish of Bisley is an amalgam of several small local charities, some of which were established over 200 years ago, to help the residents of the Parish of Bisley-with-Lypiatt, including those living in Eastcombe, Oakridge, Bussage (east of the Toadsmoor Brook) and Chalford (north of the River Frome). It is administered by six locally appointed Trustees.
