“SPACE” Sports and the Arts Community Grants

Summer may seem far away during the grey skies of January but Littlehampton Town Council would like to add a little sunshine by launching their “SPACE” grants programme.  The grants aim to financially support organisations to provide sports or arts based summer holiday activities which provide children and young people aged 8-17 years with the space to try something new. Last year the grants funded Tennis sessions, squash coaching and Chalk at the Pebbles as part of the Littlehampton LOVE Festival.

Cllr Ian Buckland Chair of the Community Resources Committee said “SPACE grants are a great opportunity for local clubs and groups to reach out to young people and encourage them to try something new. We hope to fund as many initiatives as we can to provide fun activities throughout the summer.”

There is £1,000 up for grabs and applications will be considered from groups based in Littlehampton or those that operate a service within the town.

The Town Council will help to promote the summer holiday sessions via its website and social media channels.

So if your group or club could give local children a chance to learn a new sport or get creative then please fill in an application form or contact Littlehampton Town Council on 01903 732062 for an hard copy.

Applications are invited until  Friday 1st March.
