Warwickshire County Council Councillors’ Grant Fund 2017-18

Funding Now Available For Community Projects Throughout Warwickshire

The Warwickshire County Council Councillors’ Grant Fund is aimed at community and voluntary organisations. The Fund provides each of the County’s 57 Councillors with a pot of £5000 to support small-scale projects within their division that support the following outcomes:

  • Warwickshire’s communities and individuals are supported to be safe, healthy and independent;
  • Warwickshire’s economy is vibrant and supported by the right jobs, training, skills and infrastructure.

Ansty is in Rugby Borough

Applications are invited for the post of part-time Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer to Ansty Parish Council.

Ansty is a small Parish Council and Councillors meet on the 3rd Thursday of the every month (except August), with occasional additional meetings. The Clerk would be expected to attend all meetings.

The audit regime changes in April next year and for smaller Councils (less than £25K budget) in particular the reliance on internal auditors will be much more important with the ability to opt out of external auditing.  To address this concern we are looking for a number of clerks and councillors to put their name forward to become a WALC approved auditor.

Anyone interested should state their reasons for getting involved and what skills and experience they can bring.

Some of the things that the CSW Broadband team are already doing include:

We welcomed and congratulated C Cllr Les Caborn following the recent County Council elections and look forward to working together. Cllr Caborn is the portfolio holder for Adult Social Care and Health.
