The 2013 downhill run was sponsored by Lynn and Andrew's members' grants.

The hand propelled gritters were paid for by Andrew & Lynn's members' grants.

Andrew & Lynn have the community decide grant money should be awarded


From April 2009 to March 2011 Frodsham was warded with Helsby and the member grant allocation was £5,000 per member per year. Frodsham and Helsby had 3 Councillors.

On 23 February 2011 we held a Community Grants evening at Fluin Lane Community Centre in Frodsham where 15 community groups in Frodsham & Helsby made brief presentations to each other - and the groups decided which three of them should receive £1,000 in grant monies.  After the meeting your three councillors made additional awards.

If you have a community project that would benefit from a small grant do please let us know.  Whilst there are no additional monies to be provided in this financial year there are likley to be fresh community grants monies available in May that will be under the control of what will be then your newly elected CWaC Councillors - whoever they are!
