Archive: Funding for Honiton Health and Wellbeing Projects - if you can tame the Dragons!
Honiton Town Council, East Devon District Council, Devon County Council and Action East Devon have teamed up to raise Â£4,000 for grants to community groups. Groups will pitch their ideas to the community at a Dragon's Den - type event to be held at the Beehive, Honiton on the afternoon of 30 November.
This will be the third year that the agencies - working as 'Honiton Together' - have organised the event.
'It's been a really successful way of getting funding to groups for projects that the community has voted to support' - said Phil Twiss, County Councillor for the Honiton area. " The groups pitch their ideas to a Dragons Den type panel of local people and at the end of the event the local people vote for the projects they think the funding should support."
Groups are invited to apply now, for grants up to Â£500, no match funding required, for projects that will support the health and wellbeing of residents of Honiton and surrounding parishes. Download the application form and guidance notes from http://eastdevon.gov.uk/housing/community-developm...
Closing date for applications is 10 November. More information about Honiton Together funding and the Honiton Dragons Den event from Hannah Reynolds, Communities Team Manager, at Action East Devon firstname.lastname@example.org
