High Legh Community Association (HLCA) Grants

 

High Legh Community Association announced at the November AGM that it intends to continue the Sports, Education and Recreation grants (SER) to facilitate the first of its two charitable objectives:-

“…to promote the benefit of the inhabitants of High Legh, without distinction of sex, political religious or other opinions, by associating the local authorities, voluntary organisations and inhabitants in a common effort to advance education and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure-time occupation with the object of improving the conditions of life for the said inhabitants”.

Grants will normally be made up to a maximum of £250

 

Who can benefit?

High Legh Residents - examples include: - groups wishing to purchase facilities, pay training costs for group leaders or fund specialist equipment. Priority is given to applications that maximise the benefits to as many High Legh residents as possible.

 

Application Process

Written applications (to Treasurer, Su Carter, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or in writing to High Legh Village Hall can be made by 28th February or 30th June. The level of grant awarded by the Community Association Council will be notified within 45 days of these dates.  Applications must fall within the first objective of the HLCA Constitution and applicants should provide evidence that any proposed expenditure offers good value for money and delivers identified benefits. There is no appeal process. The CA Council decision is final. Groups can normally only submit one application in any calendar year. 

 

Where does the money come from?

The grants are funded from part of the net profit from social events organised by the Community Association Social Committee. The amount available for grants is determined at each year-end.  The fund can be withdrawn at any time if the CAC needs to reallocate funds to its second objective (the Village Hall) in accordance with its Deed of Trust and lease requirements.

 

What happened in 2017?

In 2016 we were pleased to support High Legh Bowling Club and Community Observatory upgrade their clubhouses or buy specialist equipment.. They are all welcome to apply again in 2018, as indeed are other High Legh voluntary groups, however we must emphasize that our funds can only be used to benefit High Legh residents.

High Legh Village Hall (WA16 6LR) was well filled on recent Sunday afternoons with families enjoying an indulgent Sunday Teas in the warmth and comfort.  It was great to welcome back so many of our "regulars", as well as some people discovering High Legh Sunday Teas for the first time.   High Legh Sunday Teas will now run through until October 7th.

Enjoy a drive in the North Cheshire countryside where the spring flowers are, at last, opening up to brighten the verges and hedgerows.  All the family are very welcome to tuck in to freshly made sandwiches, home made merangues, trifle and homemade scones, sponge gateau, fruit pie, quiche, pavlova and, of course lemon drizzle cake .  A new favourite this year  is "Guiness Cake"!. 

Free parking, level access, accessible toilets, within easy reach of the M6 (J19 or 20), M56 (J9 or J7) and A50.

The proceeds from Sunday Teas go to support local voluntary organisations and charities.
