A new £400,000 funding pot is being launched to support community organisations in North Walsham, Stalham, Fakenham and Holt

Introduction

As part of an exciting ‘Market Towns Initiative’, we have allocated each of our market towns, Fakenham, Holt, North Walsham and Stalham, a budget of up to £100,000 for the financial year 2018/19 to spend on locally owned and managed projects.

We have committed to supporting community-led projects with the intention of revitalising and enhancing the four town centres.  These projects will be set up to increase footfall within the Market Towns and the time spent in them by those who visit.

By working together with local community groups, we can improve facilities and support changes that will make our Market Towns a better place to live, work and visit.

The kind of activities or initiatives that could be supported, for example, might include:

  • Improved signage.
  • Public WIFI schemes.
  • Events or festivals which are hosted in the town, promoting local products and/or community interests.
  • Loyalty schemes that encourage people to spend in the town centre.
  • Projects that generate and/or increase enterprise activity, to help create or sustain local jobs.
  • Trails or activities that encourage visitors to the town.
  • Environmental schemes that make the town more appealing and attractive.
  • Heritage schemes that enhance the historical appearance of the town.
