Bridgwater Town Council has a system whereby Ward Councillors can recommend Community groups for Grant aid from the 'Ward Budgets'. This means that each of Bridgwater's  7 wards has an annual budget of £1,000 to allocate in this way. This in no way prevents groups and individuals contacting the Town Council through the normal Grant Aid procedure . 

The system involves contacting one of your Town Councillors who then has to get majority support from his or her fellow  ward councillors . The submission is then ratified by the Finance committee. 

Westover Town Councillors are Brian Smedley, Steve Austen and Pat Parker. They can be contacted through westoverward@gmail.com with ideas.

Grants awarded so far are;-

Friends of Brownes Pond:- £500. As a contribution to works in progress in taking the pond into community ownership.

West Quay Action  Group ;- £500. To assist with hardship cases relating to the wall collapse
