Additional documents:


The Grants Advisory Committee reviewed all Community Chest applications received between 4 December and 20 January. There were no deferrals to consider.


Two applications were brought forward in ‘Appendix A’ of the reports pack for Friday 29 January 2021.


After consideration of these applications, the Committee recommended to the Lead Cabinet Member for Finance that:


Waterbeach Military Heritage Museum (GVTFSGDH) be funded at the requested level of £1000

Blue Smile (XRFPMWHW) be funded at the requested level of £1000.



The Committee noted the remaining money left in the pot for the Community Chest grants and discussed providing an additional grant that community groups could apply to for covid relief funding.

It was agreed that officers would bring a draft paper regarding this to the next meeting of the Grants Advisory Committee for Members to review.
