Community groups in Rastrick still have a chance to be given a share of a £5,000 ward grant from Calderdale Council.

At Rastrick ward forum it was agreed to give £500 to Rastrick Juniors Football Club, Rastrick Big Local Partnership and Carr Green and Crowtrees Community Action Group. The money will help fund improvements in the area.

Groups still have a chance to bid for the money but must have their application submitted before the end of February, with ward councillors and the neighbourhood team making a decision on the application and whether to award the money.

It must be a community group that applies, and that group must have a constitution (or rules), a bank account in the name of the organisation, and a safeguarding policy if it works with children, young people or vulnerable adults. The maximum grant per application is £500.
