To receive and consider a grant request from Witney Music Festival for a community event in the summer of 2021.
The Committee received a funding request from Witney Music Festival towards an event in Witney during the summer of 2021.
Members had heard that a venue for the event was proving problematic but were supportive and had identified an underspent budget where funds could be awarded from. As there were two events vying for the funding it was agreed that both would receive 65% of the amount requested.
1. That the Town Council pledges 65% totalling £9,750 of the requested £15,000 towards this event; and,
2. That this is awarded from an underspend in the discretionary grants budget 2020-21.
