Wickford at Christmas could receive a grant of up to £10,000.
We’ve been shortlisted in the Aviva Community Fund, which this year is supporting 500 projects across the UK over four levels and three categories (Environment, Skills for Life and Health & Wellbeing).
We ended the public voting stage on 2,463 votes and it has now gone through to a judging round. The finalists will be announced on 27th November, so we’re keeping everything crossed! The winners will then be announced in late January 2019. Click here to find out more
It would be a big boost for us to get this extra money as our town’s Christmas lights and street fair are funded by the community and local businesses. We would use the grant to put funds towards next year’s display and lights.
