Welcome | Worth Parish Council
Welcome to The Worth Parish Council Website

Welcome to the Parish Council's Website. It is hoped that you will find it interesting and informative.

It must be emphasised from the beginning that this site is designed to keep local residents informed about the Parish Council's activities. (After all, it is your money the Council is spending !). The website is not intended to duplicate any of the information contained in the existing Websites for both Copthorne and Crawley Down, the villages that comprise Worth Parish. That cannot be emphasised too strongly. Obviously there are links to both Village Websites as can be seen below, and it is to those that you should refer for information about local activities and organisations.

9/1/17 Grants of up to 5k available

Groups across the UK are being encouraged to apply now for a grant for local community projects, thanks to funding from Tesco's 'Bags of Help' scheme. 

'Bags of Help', a grants scheme funded by Tesco customers through the 5p carrier charge and administered by Groundwork, provides grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 for projects that use or provide access to outdoor spaces in communities. 

Grants are available for all manner of groups including voluntary or community organisations (including registered charities/companies), schools, health bodies (e.g. CCGs, NHS Hospital Trust, Foundation Trust), Parish/Town Councils, local authorities and social housing providers.

Since October 2016 the scheme has awarded £24million to communities across England, Wales and Scotland. 

Do you have a project in mind or know someone who does? Then why not apply for a grant or spread the word about this amazing opportunity?

For information on how to apply please click here or for further inspiration and help, check out our Community Project Toolkit
