Wincanton For The Future and Good Stuff Fund

 

 

Wincanton Town Council Town Initiative

Good Stuff Fund 2020-21and beyond

Let’s look to the Future

Our county and residents are experiencing immense challenges in their personal life due to COVID-19 with all age groups potentially impacted by loneliness, isolation, health and wellbeing concerns; this goes beyond our community however we are focused on Wincanton, and the future.

The Good Stuff Fund is a great opportunity to consider how we can build community resilience, reduce loneliness and isolation, and support our most vulnerable, to explore exciting plans and, new ideas such as a community larder in the town, a community garden and to open up green spaces so we can all enjoy, learn from and experience nature and wildlife.

There is already so much good stuff happening in the town, residents giving their time to support vulnerable individuals and families, we have the KNITWITS making colourful covers in the market place and so much more. Thank you.

Looking forward, we are establishing a volunteer and social action group, so if you are interested in giving a few hours to support the many good stuff ideas; from design `digital’, growing your own, foraging, helping our wildlife and natural world and activities for all ages.

Wonderful people, organisations and businesses continue to demonstrate care, kindness and support at this time.

What a great town this is, to live in, and be part of, as a resident.

This fund has also been designed to provide pump priming of great ideas for the community good.

Wincanton for the Future Plan Yr.1 plan is available on the Town Council Website and sits alongside the Wincanton Environment and Ecological Charter providing a sense of our plans over the coming years to enable the town to be sustainable.

There are so many ideas in development from rewilding green spaces for nature and wildlife walks, educational opportunities to learn new skills, a repair café and an equipment share scheme so we as a town can repair, reuse, and recycle.

The Fund is part of two plans to regenerate the town and is in addition to local government response to rescue and recovery of businesses and to support residents.

This fund has been designed to provide support for the local delivery of the Wincanton for the Future and Wincanton Town Council initiatives.

In line with all council expenditure, it is expected that value for money is achieved from this funding and a bid, if approved, must be spent on the purpose for which it is allocated.

Proposals will be considered throughout the year (or until the fund has been spent)
