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

It now seems likely that the Route 34/34A Community Bus Service will end on 4 September 2015, due to funding cuts, although two IOW Councillors have submitted a motion to have the cuts suspended until a consultation exercise has been undertaken.

How important is this? Do you use the community bus? Do you rely on it? Should the Parish Council try to save it, 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
