THE next round of neighbourhood meetings start this month, and everyone is welcome to attend.

Organised by Castle Point Borough Council, the meetings give residents a chance to find out what is happening in their community.

Local ward councillors, Castle Point Borough Council officers including the area director, Essex County Council, the police and other partner organisations attend the meetings. Residents can hear updates from them and also ask questions.

The meetings are held four times a year.

Castle Point Borough Council would like to remind people that while at the discretion of the chairman questions can be asked on the night, for a full researched answer, questions should be submitted in writing seven working days in advance.

The Hadleigh/Daws Heath and Canvey West meetings are on April 26.

I think someone should go and ask them what are they going to do to support our club or they may find 500 local voters and their families (2000/3000)tactically voting at the upcoming elections.

Well!!!

They could offer to release the lease on condition it was given to the supporters trust, rebate rates to the club.

Publicise home games on the council website.
Provide the supporters trust with a grant.

Put better signage up for visitors to the Island.

Promise to support a planning application for a larger clubhouse, therefore encouraging sponsors.

Just make it known we have their support would be a start.

The list could go on, I have not started thinking yet.

If Jeff King owns the lease can they legally take it from him?

Any publicity would be welcome

The signs could be better

Can`t see us getting any kind of grant or rebate from the Council

Have we any money to extend the clubhouse?

A show of support would be good

You never know until you ask, Jeff may want a cheap way out of the lease.

The council are giving money away at the moment


THIS IS US!!!



Do you have a community project or initiative requiring capital funding that will improve the quality of life for your community?

Can you show that it meets local needs and has the support of local residents?

If so, the new Essex County Council Community Initiatives Fund may be able to help make it happen.

This new grant scheme is aimed at bodies that are properly constituted and broadly representative of their local community or neighbourhood i.e. Neighbourhood Forums, Community Associations and Voluntary and Community organisations.

Come along to the Castle Point Borough Council Neighbourhood meeting in your area, and hear more:
For more information and an application pack please contact:

Beverley Davies, Community Initiatives Fund Facilitator :
Tel: 07929543523
OR email info@communityinitiativesfund.co.uk to request a form by post.

In all the time I have lived in CP, no-one has ever knocked on my door to canvas my vote. I don't know who runs the council now but I'm not particularly impressed so I've no complaint about voting against them, providing I don't have to vote for the Tories.

Capital Projects Scheme

Aim of scheme
Capital Projects funding primarily supports organisations that wish to build develop and/or refurbish facilities in order to sustain and/or increase participation.

Types of facilities funded include, grass pitches drainage/improvements, changing rooms, floodlights, artificial turf pitches, pavilions and clubhouses, funding is also available for revenue purposes e.g. a football development officer.

Grant ceiling
The overall target level for Foundation grant support should be 50%. The appropriate level for each individual project will be decided on the merits of the case but normally the applicant is required to provide matching contributions; in exceptional cases higher levels of support, up to a ceiling of 90% will be available, such cases are likely to include those applications where need is clear and priority objectives such as serving the disadvantaged or engaging the ethnic community will be met. Our policy of investing 40% of our funding into the top 20% most deprived wards remains a priority;

For projects over £20,000 revenue funding can be applied for linked to a capital bid but must not exceed 20% of the grant being requested. Evidence will be required as to the need and where applications are for human resources e.g. Football Development Officer a job description will be required.

Eligibility criteria

Who can apply?
Applications are welcome from Local Authorities, all educational establishments, football clubs, multi sport clubs, registered charitable organisations, companies limited by guarantee, industrial and provident societies and unincorporated not for profit organisations. Applications are particularly encouraged that increase usage across the target areas listed below:

I have a Labour Councillor living 2 doors away from me in Benfleet. He is a season ticket holder. Now unfortunately I go away for a week tomorrow so wont be able to speak to him but surely he could do something. He will know who he is if he is reading this. He is a Labour Councillor and I believe was once the Mayor of Castle Point and a friend of Jeffs.
Can we not approach him. He'll be at the match on Saturday (I won't unfortunately)

They're also firmly against the Calor Gas proposal, a company who could well prove to benefit us.

Do we know if anyone has approached Calor regarding possible spnsorship - would suit them as a local PR excercise even if they don't get permission in the long run?

Sorry guys. I know this is our club and is important, but the issue the Calor gas is far more important.
I would just not like to entertain anything to do with them at this point in time and at all in future with the nature of their business.

I understand Phil - sometimes you have to be a bit ruthless and get carried away. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/ban.gif" alt="" />

Anyway "I'll be selling me own mother" next <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> proceeds to the trust of course.....

Maybe we can get some Lottery money? If Man Utd are deemed a worthy cause <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" /> then we should have no problem.
