If you live in Drayton Parslow and are currently finding it difficult to afford essential things, you might be eligible for a grant from the Drayton Common Land Trust Fund. These grant criteria will be as follows:
The Trustees shall annually apply such rents for the relief of financial hardship, either generally or individually, of people in Drayton Parslow Parish by making grants of money for providing or paying for items, services or facilities.
This grant can still take the form of a credit towards electricity bills however the Trustees are now able to consider other requests that fit the criteria above.
Villagers can nominate themselves or can nominate a neighbour, friend or acquaintance who might be reluctant to apply on their own behalf. All applications and distributions from the fund are handled in confidence. The closing date for applications is 16th November 2018 as the grants will be decided at the meeting on the 26th November 2018.
