RESOLVEDnot to approve the following applications

This application was ineligible as the organisation is outside the geographic area of the Trust.


21337a Kent Estuary Youth Group

Members noted that the application was very large in the context of the Holehird fund and a contribution from the Trust would be of minimal impact.  Members suggested application to a larger fund would be more appropriate.


21236b St Michael’s Parochial Church Council Kirkby Thore

Members noted the size of the application and expressed the view that a more modest request might be more appropriate to the Trust. Members also noted that the applicant had been unable to spend a previous award.
