The East Riding of Yorkshire Council fund helps support Platinum Jubilee community events in the Bridlington area
Jubilee projects in this area which were successful in securing funding included Bridlington City Council’s grassroots commemorative coin initiative for primary school children.
The parish councils of Atwick, Barmston and Fraisthorpe, Beeford, Bempton, Bewholme, Boynton, Burton Fleming, Flamborough, Grindale, Kilham, Langtoft, Lissett and Ulrome, North Frodingham, Rudston, Thwing and Octon, and Foston have also benefited from the fund .
Earlier this year the council’s rural policy and partnerships team set up a new small grants fund to support communities in the East Riding who were planning to organize celebratory activities during or around the weekend of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
All parish and town councils in the East Riding were eligible to apply to the Community Fund for a grant of up to £500.
They could apply in partnership with other groups or organizations, such as schools or associations of town halls.
Councilor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic growth and tourism, said: ‘Council have been delighted to be able to offer financial support to help the people of the East Riding celebrate this unique occasion, and I hope May all communities have a good weekend.”
