Village halls, community buildings and community shops are being invited to apply for a grant from East Devon District Council’s (EDDC).

The community builddings fund scheme can award grants of up to £5,000 to facilities in areas which are not covered by a town council.

Funding can be provided for projects such as new or improved toilet facilities, kitchen facilities, roof repairs, heating and new door fixtures.

EDDC chief executive Mark Williams said: “I would urge any of our more rural community buildings and community shops that need funding to find out more about the grants available, and to apply if they’re eligible.

“Over the years, we’ve been offering it this fund has contributed to a great many really worthy projects.”

The closing date for the next round of applications is June 30.
