Bury St Edmunds Town Council has created its first Locality Budget Scheme.
The aim of the scheme is to enable community groups and organisations to request financial assistance to support their projects and activities via their ward councillor.
Where projects or activities have a wider reach, councillors will be able to combine their budgets.
To start the process, community groups need only to contact their ward councillor.
For contact details, visit the town council office on Angel Hill, call 01284 725111 or go to www.burystedmunds.onesuffolk.net
