Does your organisation support the Thorrington community?

Each year the Parish Council has a small pot of money to award to organisations or charities that benefit the residents of Thorrington.  In order to be considered, the Parish Council asks that they contact the Clerk in writing detailing their work and its links to the village.  

These are considered by the Council at a meeting, usually in October or November and following this discussion they decide how the money will be allocated.  Awards must be made out to an account in the name of the organisation that it is awarded to.  If you would like any further information about these donations please contact the Clerk.
