THE prime responsibility of the Barnes Charitable Trust is the maintenance of Ashmeadow Woodlands.

When the Trust has surplus funds it uses these to make small grants within the village.

Arnside Guides, Minds in Tune, Arnside Football Club, Arnside National School and Arnside Art Group were among those local organisations to be awarded grants in 2018.

The grant given to the Art Group helped towards the cost of four 'Art for All' workshops run in Arnside to encourage people to take up art. That for the guides helped with the costs of the Jigsaw Camp and also paid to repair one of the tents.

Grant awards are normally in the range of £300 to £1,000.

Preference will be given to projects which benefit the environment/education/recreation.

For full details see the guidance notes available on the web site or contact the grants secretary Jennifer Rae on 01524 762193 or email

The closing date for 2020 applications is February 29, 2020.
