Yesterday was the deadline for the return of bids for the tender for new play park equipment. 10 bids were received in all.
So that the community has a chance to see and comment on the range of designs, the Parish Council will be holding a drop-in session in the village hall on Tuesday 22 May from 3:30pm to 5pm.
Most bidders supplied glossy posters with 3D visuals of their design. The gallery on this page shows eight of them. One bidder did not supply 3D visuals and another did not supply their design electronically, so we have been unable to include them here.
The Parish Council will hold an extraordinary meeting on Wednesday 23 May to consider the bids. (View the Agenda)
Each year Upper Rissington Parish Council allocates money to be awarded in grants to organisations for projects or events that will be of benefit to the residents of the parish.
The grant funding made available is allowed under Section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972 which empowers the Council to spend some of its money, subject to limits, on any purpose that it considers to be “in the interests of, and will bring direct benefit to, their area, or any part of it, or all or some of its inhabitants”.
Applications for the financial year 2018/19 are now open.
Grant applications will be considered three times a year, in July, November, and March, by the Council as a whole.
