Ilfracombe groups get �13,000
Ilfracombe Town Council hands out cash to many local groups.
COMMUNITY groups in Ilfracombe have received a New Year bonus of �13,015 in grants from the Town Council.
Through its small grants process the council has handed out the final round of donations for the financial year 2011/12, in addition to �18,500 awarded earlier on.
Many of the grants total just a few hundred pounds and have gone to a wide variety of community groups such as Ilfracombe Sea Cadets, the museum and Holy Trinity Church, as well as youth sports clubs and the voluntary sector.
“The town council is delighted to support such a wide range of organisations that play an important role within the community,” said the Mayor, Councillor Rod Donovan.
