Wymeswold Village Project Fund - Community Grant Awards 2014


The Wymeswold Village Project Fund (the organising committee behind the annual Duck Races) made grants available to local clubs, associations, societies, community projects and charities. The grants fund is generated by the profits from the betting races, BBQ and games at the Wymeswold Duck Races.

Applications from three village-based organisations were received by the closing date of 30th September and the Awards Panel was able to distribute a total of £600 in grants as follows:

  • Wolds Scouts Group
    Contribution towards new cooker
  • £200.00
  • Wymeswold Community First Responders
    Contribution towards new kit
  • £200.00
  • Wymeswold Bowls Club
    Contribution towards woods collectors
  • £200.00

The Awards Panel felt that all the above projects met the conditions of the award scheme and were pleased to help out these village organisations with their respective projects.

Next year’s Duck Races will be held on Sunday 10th May 2015 and as usual village groups are invited to get involved.
