Getting Support and Funding

29th June 2017

10.30am to 3pm

Funding is an ever-present challenge for groups and organisations working in the voluntary sector. Where to find the right type and level of funding is the most frequently asked question among community groups across Cambridgeshire.

This event provides the perfect opportunity for organisations to meet key funders, and allows for discussion around your particular organisations needs and requirements. Attendance is by appointment only.

Funders at the event are: The Heritage Lottery Fund; The Heathy Fenland Fund, The Evelyn Trust: and Tesco Bags of Help. There will also be demonstrations of how to undertake a funding search using the new 'Support Cambridgeshire 4 Communities' resource.

The Evelyn Trust is interested in healthcare projects in communities in Cambridgeshire through our rolling small grants programme under which applications in the range £4,000 to £10,000 can be considered at any time. Whilst welcoming other applications we would particularly encourage applications that are in line with the Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Strategy, especially projects which:
Support young people within families with mental health, alcohol, violence or substance abuse issues
Assist working age adults with long term conditions and healthcare communities that support these issues
Enable older people to receive help and support in the community rather than needing to go into hospital or long term care.

Bags of Help is Tesco's exciting local community grant scheme where the moneyraised from the 5p bag charge is being used to fund thousands of local projects incommunities right across the UK. Projects that bring benefit to their community will get the green light – these range from improving community buildings and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers and hosting community events. Tesco customers vote on three projects in each area every other month. The winner of the vote receives up to £4,000 and the runners up also get up to £2,000 and £1,000 each.

The Heritage Lottery Fund funds a broad range of activities that help people of all ages explore their heritage together. These can range from small scale events, exhibitions & workshops to larger projects that include training, volunteering, conservation & restoration. HLF have a range of programmes with grants from £3,000 to £5 million.

Healthy Fenland Fund funds charitable projects from existing and newly forminggroups that are/will be constituted, and based in Fenland. Groups must be local asthe aim is to build local capacity (as the name of the Programme "Engaging andStrengthening Communities in Fenland" suggests). Charitable projects will be supported if they seek to improve the health and well being of people living in Fenland.

Support Cambridgeshire 4 Communities. An opportunity to find out how to carry out funding searches on this new free funding resource on the Support Cambridgeshire website.CCVS development staff will be able to help groups with their funding planning, andpreparations applications and information on other grant making trusts and fundingsources.

Booking is essential to attend this event and all sessions with funders are by appointment only

To book your appointments call us on 01223 464696 or email:enquiries@cambridgecvs.org.uk

We need to know which funders you want to talk to and a bit about the projects you want to fund.

Each appointment will be for 15 minutes and refreshments will be available

Wisbech Rose Fair - float parade

The search has begun to find this year's Rose Queen to head up the popular Rose Fair carnival parades.

Now into its 54th year the event attracts visitors from across the country.

The competition has officially opened and anybody over the age of 14 who lives in the Wisbech district can enter.

• To be in with a chance of winning send a picture of yourself and why you think you deserve to be Rose Queen, along with your address and contact details to sarah.cliss@archant.co.uk before 5pm on Thursday June 15. The lucky winner will be contacted by Wisbech Round Table.

• The contest is being run by the Wisbech Standard along with the Wisbech Round Table, which organises the Rose Fair parade.

The Rose Queen will be taken for a dress fitting, have her hair styled, her nails painted and enjoy a photography session. They will also win a cash prize.

In keeping with tradition there will be two Rose Fair parades on Saturday July 1 – one at 11am and one 2pm – which bring a carnival atmosphere to the town and attracts visitors from across the region to enjoy the spectacle.

The Rose Fair is regarded as one of the region's finest flower festivals and this year has the theme "For the Love of Books."

This year's festival runs from June 28 to July 1 and centres around St Peter & St Paul's Church.

Three other town centre churches will also hold festivals, each carrying their own theme.

During Rose Fair the whole town takes on a festive atmosphere, celebrating its horticultural heritage. The jewel in the crown is the church of St Peter and St Paul which celebrated it's 900th anniversary in 2011.

Join Roughshod Theatre Company for an evening of explosive stories and unexpected results…– 'Roughshod:Reactive' are coming to the Queen Mary Centre, Wisbech on Saturday 8th of July at 7.30pm.

They are hosting workshops in the morning for anyone wishing to get involved. The workshops aim to teach communication skills and get the group telling their stories to one another, using a variety of games and techniques.

Explosive Stories, Unexpected Results…

Roughshod: Reactive

What happens when worlds' collide?
when heaven meets earth?
if small encounters cause a big reaction?

A passenger on a train gets help unexpectedly from a stranger, a courageous nun surprises everyone by going nuclear and a religious terrorist is disarmed by a man from the wrong side of town.

Mixing powerful performance (and a little comic chaos) Riding Lights Roughshod use true stories, satirical sketches and the experiences of the actors themselves to work out what happens when God decides to disturb the peace… in person.

Join us for a transformative tour-de-force as Roughshod shake things up in this explosive new sketch show for 2017.

Sowing the seeds of technology with Farmbot at the Octavia Hill's Birthplace House

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 13:00

A cutting edge technology that is set to take the grind out of growing is to be showcased at Octavia Hill's Birthplace House in Wisbech on Saturday (July 8).

The Farmbot, which is new to the United Kingdom and is being developed and distributed in this country by TVA G&C Limited of Downham Market, is the centrepiece of a technology showcase at a free open day at the museum.

A highlight of the day will be a talk about the future of technology by Julian Snape, of TVA G&C Ltd, who worked for Apple UK in the early days of computing and is a co-founder of London Futurists, whose membership has mushroomed from half a dozen people gathering in a public house in the mid 1990s to 6,500 people today.

Mr Snape, a business automation technology specialist, explained that the radical new Farmbot – which will be on show in the garden at the museum – is a gantry system currently designed for domestic use and operating over a plant bed measuring three metres by one and a half metres.

The device picks up plants and seeds, as well as checking the soil for moisture, acidity and alkalinity, and waters individual seeds and plants.

The bot can even detect the difference between a plant and a weed, enabling it to do the weeding for you.

Although the present model is pitched at gardeners, a larger-scale version is being developed which will be suitable for small commercial operations and will be of interest to a wider constituency of people who grow under glass.

The open day at the museum at 7 South Brink, Wisbech, will also provide the opportunity to meet local authors at a book-signing session.

Author Anthony Carter will speak about his days photographing the giants of motor racing, including Fangio, Graham Hill and John Surtees, before high security measures intervened.

An exhibition of about 70 of his photographs will be featured in the Long Room.

The open day runs from 1pm to 4.30pm, with last admissions at 4pm. Mr Snape will speak at 2pm and Mr Carter at 3pm. All welcome, but children should be accompanied by an adult.

Featuring some of the most recognisable of drivers; Chris Amon, Jim Clarke, John Surtees, Jack Brabham and Stirling Moss to name a few!

CAKE AND COFFEE DAY FOR HAITI

14TH OF JULY, 11AM - 3PM

Invite Friends and Family and come along to this special cake and coffee day; helping fundraise for the school children in Haiti!

Haiti remains one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Today, 2.5 million people in the country – a quarter of its population – continue to experience extreme poverty. In August, a group of students from Loughborough University will visit Haiti and spend a week teaching art, in all forms, to the students at our high school.

This project will be fulfilling and of enormous importance to the students in Haiti, as currently they have no access to art classes and no access to the materials necessary. These young people are delighted to be having this chance to learn new skills and be able to express themselves through the power of art and dance and drama. Please help me help them, by coming along and becoming a part of this special project. If you are interested in offering any help please contact the reception at Tydd St Giles Golf and Country Club, it would be much appreciated!

Thank you for your support.

The Challenge is to join the library, then read SIX books – one each week of the Holidays – and collect all SIX sticker clues (some of which are scratch & sniff!) which when stuck in your very own Collector's Folder will help solve a mystery!

You can sign up at the first Animal Agents session on 25th July, then join us each Tuesday - 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th August – for a fabulous animal-themed craft and the opportunity to borrow an exciting story or information book from the exclusive Animal Agents Mini-Library.

Activities kindly sponsored by Wisbech Town Council
