Are you embarking upon or thinking about a project which could improve opportunities for people in Haverhill or improve the physical environment of the town? Would you like up to £5,000 for your project?

From Monday 29 September, groups and organisations can apply for up to £5,000 from a special grant pot, made available to ONE Haverhill by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 13 November 2014 at 10.00am.

I would encourage anyone who is undertaking, or thinking of undertaking, a project which improves the lives of people in Haverhill to apply. A sum of £5,000 is a lot of money and could make a real difference to your project and your community.”
