Bramham Community Fund


Bramham Community Fund

Alison Mackie


The Bramham Community Fund was created in 2003 to distribute the monies available to Bramham as a result of the Leeds Festival.  It was set up by the owners of Bramham Park and the promoter (originally Mean Fiddler, now Festival Republic).  About two thirds of the money has come from donations made by residents obtaining heavily discounted tickets for the event and the other third is a donation from the promoter.  Every year, a committee under the chairmanship of Nick and Rachel Lane Fox and on which the Parish Council is represented, meets to consider applications for grants from community organisations.  Since the Fund was set up, it has made grants of over £300,000.

The objective of the Fund is generally to support community projects and these must benefit the residents of Bramham.  The Fund does not support commercial activities or private individuals. 

At a meeting on 8 March, the committee agreed to make grants towards the following:

All Saints’ Church                  Organ refurbishment                                       £19000

Village Hall                              New exits and kitchen furniture                       £6550

Drama Group                          Radio microphones/disco lights                       £2500

Bramham Parish Council        Pavilion loft boarding and furniture                  £2210

Community Action Group     Christmas lighting motifs                                 £1520

Bramham Parish Council        Senior Citizen’s Centre Feasibility Study        £1500           

Folly Allotments                    Contribution to lay-by project                                    £1000

Bramham In Bloom                 Gardening project at Bramham School              £400

Senior Citizens                        Monday Club                                                     £250

Yorkshire Countrywomen’s   Speaker support                                                 £250


The Fund also supports the shuttle bus between the village and the festival and the

ticket administration costs.

It is expected that the committee will meet again next March to consider grants from the 2016 Leeds Festival.  An announcement will be made in the magazine nearer the date and any community organisation wishing to apply for a grant will be required to submit an application no later than 14 February 2017.
