Grants to Voluntary or Charitable Organisations

The Parish Council has a small amount of funds available to give grants to voluntary or charitable organisations, under the provisions of Sec 137, Local Government Act 1972. Preference will be given to those organisations that can show how they benefit the residents of Havenstreet and Ashey. Any organisations wishing to apply should do so to the Clerk by email:

Community Bus Service

The Southern Vectis Route 33 bus, the Route 34/34A Community Bus Service (together with others around the Island) ended on 4 September 2015, due to IOW Council funding cuts. As a consequence, Havenstreet no longer has any bus services.

The Parish Council is working with partners to try to establish alternative services, although this may take some time. How important is this to you? Do you use the community bus? Do you rely on it? Should the Parish Council help fund alternative services, even if it means increasing the Council Tax?

We need to know your views. Please telephone Veronica Hattersley (Chair) on 882155 or Chris Binnie (Clerk) on 565334, or email
