Village Project Fund Grant application

Wymeswold Village Project Fund (the organising committee behind the annual Duck Races) makes small grants available to local clubs, associations, societies, community projects and charities. These grants are as a result of the profits realised on the betting races, bar and games. Grants will be awarded up to a value of £300.

Applications are invited from properly-constituted community and voluntary groups for activities not conducted for profit. Grants should be towards a new initiative or project (rather than general running costs) and there should be an identifiable benefit to people residing in the parish of Wymeswold.

The organisation or project must be based in the Parish of Wymeswold or carry out activities (other than fund-raising) within the Parish.

To help us assess your application, please complete the Grants Application Form to give us more information about your organisation and your project, and forward it to Lesley Herrington (Secretary, Wymeswold Duck Race Committee) at Goscote House, 79 Brook Street, or email to

The closing date for the application is 31st August 2023.
