It has produced a grant application checklist which will be available on its website.

Town clerk Gareth Davies, speaking at the people and communities committee meeting, said: “We wanted to ensure we provide a clear criteria, both in terms of what will be funded and what type of organisation will be funded.

“The idea is that this checklist can be provided to every organisation who rnquire about getting a grant and it’s five minutes’ work.”

Efforts have been made to ensure organisations are not discouraged from applying by the process involved.

“The number of grant applications the council receives is remarkably low,” said Mr Davies. “The number of grant applications generated in Berwick to external funders is lower than other areas.”
