What We're Doing
The Trust recently set up a small grants scheme using its own funds and money received from our County Councillor, Geoff Hockley.
The grants are to help kick start projects in the village that will benefit the community and can be applied for by any organisations within Titchfield.
Normally a ceiling of £200 will be applied but in certain circumstances this may be increased.
You can apply for the grants by E mailing the Trust at
Grants have already be given to :
The Christmas Tree on the Green…. £200
Oasis Youth Club Kitchen Refurbishment….£200
Titchfield in Bloom…..£350
Cycle Rack at the Community Centre….£150
Country Park Playground
The creation of a Country Park on land to the North of the A27 between Mill Street and Cartwright Drive will begin sometime during 2018 once work on the retirement Village is complete. The Trust were instrumental in helping this exciting project come to fruition. It will protect that side of the A27 from future development and provide a welcome addition to leisure facilities not only for the village but the surrounding area as well.
One of the projects we are supporting is the building of a children’s adventure playground. It will include tunnels and slides providing exciting and challenging play opportunities. The design will take inspiration from the surrounding area and the type of material used would complement and enhance the existing landscape.
The Trust is in the process of applying for grants to add to the £25,000 we have already had set aside by the Council.
CREATING VILLAGE GATES
Over the next few months we will be researching designs and sites for a series of 'Village Gates' They are part of a scheme run by Hampshire County Council.
The intention is to highlight the fact that people are entering, or are about to enter, a 20MPH zone.
The example above is a photo shopped image of what they could look like.
Money for their design and installation has to come from private funding so we will also be looking for sponsorship.
