This is an opportunity for AMAS societies to make a real difference in their community and tackle some of the problems in your area.
Manchester City Council has funding for each ward to help residents, (that includes allotments) to make a difference in their community.
Since their introduction Cash Grants have support many projects throughout our Allotments. Below are some of the many project that have been funded.
- New society buildings at Woodhouse Park Allotments
- Composting Toliets at Brighton Grove Allotments
- New fencing at Northern Moor Allotments
- A Bee garden at Ivy Green Allotments
- An extention to Cleveleys Avenue Allotments
- Pathway works at Lamb Pitts Allotments
You can do anything that improves or brings benefits to your local area, such as improving existing community facilities, creating a community work of art, improving a piece of waste land, get people volunteering or help residents feel safer in their neighbourhood.
Almost anyone can apply – groups of friends, neighbours or voluntary, community and resident groups. All you need is for the project to be based in Manchester that will benefit Manchester residents and which you can see through from start to finish.
Funding decisions will be made by ward co-ordinators after consultation with local councillors.
Application forms should be posted to the Regeneration and Ward Support Officer for your area.
