A town council has agreed to a number of grants which are to be made to community groups next year.

Before their main virtual meeting on Monday (December 7), Cheadle Town Council held a meeting (again online) to discuss and agree upon a number of grants the council will pay out during the financial year of 2021/22.

The larger grants which were agreed were: £5,000 to Moorlands Homelink, £6,000 to Cheadle Citizen Advice, £3,500 to Cheadle in Bloom, £2,000 to Team Cheadle.

They also agreed to set aside a further £17,000 to possibly go towards particular community events, should the particular groups apply for the funds (as in past years) and should the events go ahead next year. These included: Party in the Park, Cheadle Carnival and Churchill Road Festival.

Councillors also agreed to an annual donation of £500 to the Royal British Legion.

The meeting then turned to smaller grants of a maximum of £200 per applicant.

Those agreed were: £200 to the Friends of Cecilly Brook, £200 to the Cheadle Allotment Association towards the cost of reinforcing a boundary fence, £200 to Cheadle Lions Club, £200 to the Cheadle and District Disabled Club towards their £2,000 maintenance costs for their mini bus, and £200 to the Threapwood Girlguides Division of which six packs are within Cheadle.

Councillors also agreed to donate £200 to the Cheadle Toy Bank Appeal.
