Warminster Town Council ~ Presentation Of Grants To Local Organisations
A presentation of grants from Warminster Town Council to local organisations was made on Monday 4th September at Warminster Civic Centre, with the Mayor Of Warminster Rob Fryer handing the awards to grateful recipients. Representatives from a range of charities and local sports and arts groups described to the audience the projects towards which the funds would be used, and what a difference the support from the Town Council made to their groups.


Grants awarded included a small sum for the Incredible Edible Garden, a new initiative at Bradley Road, Warminster, with the money being used for items such as seeds and compost. Martin Weymont received the funds saying the garden was there for anyone to help themselves to the produce, but cautioned that the garden was not to be confused with the Tynings allotments!


Representatives from Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire, HELP Counselling Services, Spurgeons, Warminster Athenaeum Trust, Warminster Citizens Advice, Warminster Community Choir, Warminster Festival, Warminster Flers Association, Warminster Highbury Youth Football Club, Warminster Philharmonic, Warminster Table Tennis Club and the Wessex MS Therapy Centre, were all delighted to receive their cheques. The funds would be used for a variety of purposes including respite for young carers, sheet music, counselling sessions, football kit and a hoist for the MS Centre.

Mayor of Warminster, Rob Fryer said: ‘It’s a pleasure to be able to help our local community through the grants awards. Although we are limited in what we can provide it is evident that even a small grant can really make a big difference.’
