Your Fund Surrey is providing £100 million for community projects. You can see the Your Fund Surrey map by following this link. yourfundsurreymap
The attached PowerPoint explains the process and the timeline. First proposals need to be submitted via the interactive map by mid-February. Those proposals which receive significant public support via the interactive map will then be invited to submit a full application in March. Funding could be awarded as soon as Spring.
The funding is for capital projects and will not pay for on-going running costs. Elmbridge Community Assembly is considering making an application for funding to set up a community hub. This would give us a base to work form and a presence in the community.
In the last meeting, two suggestions were put forward for the community hub. The most popular was to find empty premises on the Walton Road to give us footfall and a central location. The other option was to put in a bid to use a refurbished Vine Hall although this location was ideal.
Both options have hurdles to overcome and this will be discussed at the next full meeting on 20.1.21
