Glusburn village arts groups share in £1,800 funding
8:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in Keighley
Two arts groups in Glusburn are sharing in almost £1,800 provided by Craven Council’s community grants sub-committee pot.
Organisers of Fallfest, a music and arts festival that attracted 1,500 people in September, have been given £1,000.
And Glusburn Film Club has been given £796 to hold monthly movie nights at Glusburn Institute.
The club wants to give village residents a chance to enjoy movies ‘on the doorstep’ and stay afterwards for a chat.
Filmgoers will be able to share opinions in the institute’s Community Cafe about what they have just watched.
Fallfest’s volunteer committee will put its grant towards the costs incurred last month providing three days of family activities and live entertainment.
The festival, now in its third year, attracted more people than ever by providing an outdoor venue in addition to Glusburn Institute.
The grants were among six approved for community groups across Craven during the sub-committee’s Septem-ber meeting.
Councillor Linda Brock-bank, the council’s lead member for empowering communities, said: “It’s really positive we are able to support projects that provide activities in local communities.”
