The High Sheriff of Essex is encouraging voluntary and community groups from across the county, including Southend and Thurrock, to apply for grants from the High Sheriffs’ Fund. The deadline date for applications is 1 December. Successful applicants will be invited to a prestigious Awards ceremony to be held in March where their work will be highlighted to representatives from across the County, including the Lord Lieutenant and the Chief Constable.
Nominations for individuals who it is felt should be recognised for their outstanding contribution to community safety in their towns and villages are also encouraged.
The process to apply is simple. Details and an application form can be found at www.essexcommunityfoundation.org.uk
