ORGANISATIONS and communities are being urged to bid for up to £500 in grants ahead of the royal wedding in May.
Winchester City Council, which includes Whiteley, Wickham and Denmead, has opened the grants scheme for applications.
Cllr Stephen Miller said: ‘A small grant can make a real difference to a community.
‘We endeavour to fund a wide range of organisations and activities across the district to help make things happen.
‘The small grants are an essential source of funding for groups.’
