Support for community groups in West Parley
West Parley Parish Council is keen to encourage new community groups to form and to encourage the existing groups in a series of measures that will help residents to get involved in the community social scene.
Groups or individuals can apply to the Parish Council for grant funding. The application form can be obtained from the Parish Clerk Linda Leeding on 07979 853697. Please also see the eligibility criteria.
Anyone planning to set up a new group or event may not be sure of the local reaction to this so the Parish Council will pay for the hire of local public space for the first 3 meetings for new groups. This offer is for West Parley residents only and not for commercial organisations or political groups.
There are many groups operating in the village and residents are encouraged to get involved in local organisations and meet local people. Many residents help out keeping the village tidy, clear litter, distribute leaflets and help local car transport schemes.
