A new fund that will give community groups across Plymouth a chance to get on board with Mayflower 400 has been launched today.
‘Mayflower 400 Community Sparks’ will support grass-roots community, arts and cultural activity in the city through a series of grants of up to £3,000, or £5,000 in exceptional circumstances.
Funding is available for projects that can be delivered by November 2020, inspire and enrich local communities and those which link with the Mayflower 400 themes of imagination, humanity, freedom and futures are encouraged. Projects should also include an element of fun, adventure, legacy or inclusion.
Councillor Glenn Jordan, cabinet member for culture said: “Plymouth’s preparations for the Mayflower 400 commemoration, which launches in November 2019, are well underway and we want as many people as possible to take part.
“You may be thinking about organising a themed street party, community mural or intergenerational tea dance and that's where ‘Mayflower 400 Community Sparks' comes in. This is a brilliant opportunity for local communities to get creative, bring people together and make Plymouth a special place to be in 2020. All you need is a good idea to get the ball rolling.”
