Civic Awards 2019-2020.  Do You Know Someone Who Goes the Extra Mile?

Cricklade is renowned for its community spirit, so do you know of someone, or group of people, who volunteer in the community and deserve to be recognised for all their hard work, bravery or courage?  The Town Council is seeking nominations towards three categories of award:  Young Person of the Year,  Cricklade Community Award and Community Group of the Year.   Details and forms are available from the Town Council Offices or download here.  Closing date : Friday 7th February 2020.

Business Support

The council has sent out over 8,000 letters to business who are eligible for either the:

Small business grant schemes (£10,000)
For businesses that pay little or no businesses rates, the Small Business Grant Scheme will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to businesses in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief (SBRR) and rural rates relief. 

Or,

The Retail and Hospitality Grant Scheme (£25,000)

The Retail and Hospitality Grant Scheme provides businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors with a cash grant of up to £25,000 per property.

  • For businesses in these sectors with a rateable value of under £15,000, they will receive a grant of £10,000
  • For businesses in these sectors with a rateable value of between £15,001 and £51,000, they will receive a grant of £25,000.

The letters ask people to complete an online form, accessed via a dedicated grants webpage http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/business-advice-support-covid19, so we can ensure the grants are issued appropriately and help minimise fraud. Around £1.5m has been issued today (2 April 2020) as we started to release vital funds to support businesses struggling during the coronavirus outbreak.

We’re aware that many businesses are not open. If they think they are eligible they can complete the webform without the need to pick up their letter http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/business-advice-support-covid19. They will not be disadvantaged by not having the letter. 

We have also set up a dedicated contact centre for COVID-19 business support and businesses who have queries on the grant process or require further information and advice can contact us onCovid-19BusinessSupport@wiltshire.gov.uk. Please kindly share this information with businesses in your community who need support.
