Do you run a community group or local event? Perhaps you are just looking for funds to support a village project? If so Cambridge Water would like to hear from you.

Every month it will be offering a grant of up to £250 to groups or organisations for their work in the local community.

The Community Life Funds can be used to provide equipment for sports clubs, toys for a playgroup or fund special projects, such as building bat boxes or establishing a community garden.

Stephen Kay, managing director of Cambridge Water, said: “We want to hear from groups and organisations that are trying to make a real difference to the communities around them.

“Since the Life Funds began in 2003 these grassroots grants have been a huge success. In the towns and villages we have funded wildflower meadows and conservation projects, activity groups for children, village history brochures and a Keep Our Village Tidy campaign.

“In Cambridge city we have supported farm holidays for less privileged school children, a concert for the elderly performed by local students, scouting projects and societies which bring together ethnic groups.”

The Community Life Fund grants are available to groups that operate within the Cambridge Water area of supply and are open to members of the public. This includes Cambridge city and extends to the surrounding towns and villages of Ramsey and St Ives in the north, Gamlingay in the west, Balsham in the east and Melbourn in the south.

Stephen Kay added: “Since our inception 156 years ago Cambridge Water has been at the heart of the community we serve. While our primary aim is to supply high quality drinking water to homes and businesses in and around the Cambridge area we are also committed to taking an active role in community issues. This support ranges from making grants to local groups, clubs and societies, to educating people about their water supply and ways they can help to save water and save money.”
