Community groups urged to apply for Platinum Jubilee grants scheme

Harrogate Borough Council is urging community groups to apply for a community grant to help celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June.

Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. An extended bank holiday – from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June – will provide an opportunity for communities to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.

To help Harrogate district residents do so, we're inviting community groups and organisations to apply for grants of between £200 and £1,000 for events and activities taking place over the Jubilee bank holiday.

They can also apply for up to £2,000 for legacy projects that must be completed by 30 September.

Guidance notes and an online application form can be found on our website.

The closing date for all applications is noon on Friday 8 April.
