Parish Council Grant Scheme 2018-19 Is Now Open

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.

You can find more information, including the application deadlines,  in the notes and application form below.


Please contact the Clerk if you have any questions.

Police Alert About Criminal Damage in Upper Rissington

Gloucestershire police incident 137 12/05/18

Police have received a report of graffiti being sprayed at various locations around Upper Rissington overnight Friday 11th – Saturday 12th May [including, sadly, the Village Hall].

The word sprayed in black paint is ” I N O L I “. This is called a graffiti tag. Police are asking local residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

Police are also interested if any empty spray cans are found in the area. If so please do not touch and we will retrieve them for any potential evidence.

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 or email quoting the incident number.

A second police alert has been received about suspicious males selling mattresses door to door in Upper Rissington.

Gloucestershire police incident 362 11/05/18

Police have received a report of a White Mercedes Sprinter Van registration KV16 BWG with a white male selling mattresses door to door in Upper Rissington on Friday 11th May at 6:00pm

The sales man has initially said the mattresses are free. Once the residents have become interested in taking one he has told them they cost £199.

Thankfully no one has bought any items from this male.

Police advise the public not to buy any items from door to door sales persons. They could be eyeing up your property for a potential burglary or other crime.

Anyone with any information or who has had a similar experience recently is asked to report this to us by calling 101 or email quoting the incident number.
