Celebrate the Coronation with a helping hand from Holme Valley Parish Council!

Published: 20 February 2023

The Parish Council is keen to support local people and groups within the Holme Valley who wish to mark the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III through a party, event, initiative or commemorative project.

£1,000 has been set aside for this purpose with each applicant able to apply for a maximum of £100 to support their project.

Chair of the Publications and Communications Committee Cllr Kath Bellamy explained:

“The Parish Council knows how important these public occasions are to our community – they are special, and in these uncertain times we want to do all we can to support people in celebrating the Coronation. Whether it’s a tea party for our more senior residents or putting bunting up round a particular area, if a grant of up to £100 can help, we will consider it.”

Application forms are available from the Civic, Holmfirth, DD9 3AS and the Holme Valley Parish Council website.

Alternatively contact the Clerk at clerk@holmevalleyparishcouncil.gov.uk or via 01484 687460 for a form to be emailed or posted.

The deadline for applications is 12pm (noon) Monday 13 March 2023.

Completed applications (with all personal details redacted) will be considered by the Publications & Communications Committee at a meeting on Monday 20 March 2023.

Projects are expected to be completed by Tuesday 9 May 2023 and a brief report with photos and receipts should be submitted to the Council by 31 May 2023.
