The phone box in Church Street has now been fully restored and has noticeboards inside, so local organisations can display their news items to keep residents updated. Monthly hard copies of this newsletter are also pinned up there.
Batchworth Community Council offers a grant awarding scheme to local groups, subject to consideration and subsequent approval at the Council’s Finance and Full Council Meetings. The maximum award is £500, unless an exceptional case can be made for more to be granted. Full details of the policy and the application form can be found on the Council’s website, details of which are found below.
