Alloa Matters - vote for your favourite project

Alloa Town Hall - Saturday 20th January 2018

This is a reminder to say the closing date for applications is Friday 17th November.

Alloa Community Council is delighted that we have secured £4,000 to offer local groups the chance of bidding for a small grant to help their organisation in the Alloa Community.  This is a real opportunity for the people of Alloa to have a say on which projectcs should benefit from this. 

An event will be held at Alloa Town Hall on Saturday 20th January 2018 to allow the general public to hear all about the prospective project, talk to the people involed and then vote on their favourite. 

We have kept the application process as simple as possible so that any applicable group in the boundaries of Alloa Community Council can apply and I look forward to be involved in this process.  More details can be found on ACC's website -

Here is more information on Alloa Matters

Following on from the Community Matters event held on the last year, Alloa Community Council have secured £4,000 that is to be distributed in small grants to local groups for the benefit of the people of Alloa. 

As with the Community Matters event the public decide on the day the priority for the different projects.  One of the great successes of the Community Matters event was that the different groups and members of these groups were able to network together and find ways to help each others.
