Council sports grants on offer

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE County Council is urging sports clubs and organisations across Ashfield to come forward with new projects that encourage people to get involved with sport.

Clubmark accredited clubs are entitled to a £1,500 grant and not-for-profit clubs (such as voluntary or community organisations) could receive a £1,000 grant from the Community Sports Fund.

The money can be used to help with costs such as coaching fees, facility hire, equipment costs and publicity costs but it must be spent within 12 months.
