The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022 Community Grants

Grants to help North Warwickshire celebrate in style this June

Community groups and individuals are invited to apply for grants to help North Warwickshire celebrate in style this June as Her Majesty The Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service.

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. Across the four days the celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

The council is helping the community to celebrate this historic event by offering two grant schemes. To apply, you must either be a resident of North Warwickshire or a local community group.

This scheme offers grants of up to £500 to constituted community groups to deliver events and grants of £100 to community groups and individuals to help them co-ordinate and deliver street parties to celebrate this historic milestone. The community-based activities and street parties must take place during the focal point of the Platinum Jubilee Weekend in June (Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June 2022). To apply complete the application form on our website www.northwarks.gov.uk/queensjubilee .

Leader of the Council, Cllr David Wright said, “These grants will make such a difference to our local communities and I hope as many people as possible will submit a bid. It will be fantastic to see street parties and neighbours coming together after such a difficult couple of years.  

“I’d also encourage community groups, local organisations and residents’ groups making plans to celebrate 70 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign this year to apply for one of the special Jubilee Grants to help with their events.” 
Find out more on the official Platinum Jubilee website, including an interactive map which will display all the events and activities that will be taking place right across the UK.

Closing date for applications is Sunday 6th March 2022.
