FISHING COMMUNITIES GRANT FUNDING AVAILABLE

Those working in the fishing communities of Hayle and St Ives are being invited to apply for support from The Wave Hub Small Grants Fund.
 
The Wave Hub Small Grants Fund stakeholder panel met on June 16 to reconstitute following the recent local elections and to consider a number of project applications.
 
The panel elected Cllr Andrew Mitchell, local member for St Ives West and Towednack, as its chair.
 
Cllr Mitchell said: “We are looking forward to using this fund to support local fishing communities in Hayle and St Ives and we welcome project proposals to come forward so the panel can consider them at our next meeting.”
 
The Wave Hub Small Grants Fund has been established to support fishing communities impacted by the installation of the Wave Hub. The £150,000 fund is open for applications, which the panel will consider on a quarterly basis.
 
The deadline for applications to be considered for the September 2021 meeting is August 4, 2021.
