The Wolfords Village Fund has been running for more than 25 years, raising funds for Little and Great Wolford villages. Funding has been raised by arranging various events from the annual bonfire, the Golden Jubilee 2012 to social evenings such as the St George’s Dinner and the annual Boules Evening and in 2014 a Fete in conjunction with the Village Hall. These events are arranged by a committee of 9 people who will get support from other members of the villages for the larger events.
The whole purpose of the Fund is to support key amenities in both villages and also residents as well. For village residents grants are available via an application form, all applications are assessed by the Fund committee before being awarded. In the past grants have been awarded for school events abroad, sports equipment and training courses. On average about £2000 has been awarded each year.
Forthcoming events will include the St George’s Dinner and the Annual Fete and Boules . Dates and venues will be advertised. Please support this very local charity.
