Community Board Grants
We have reviewed our criteria for community grants. The new criteria and application form is now available.  Two funding rounds will be held for 2017.

Applications for grant funding in 2017 will be accepted until 30 April 2017 for consideration on the 29 May, and until 31 October for consideration on the 27 November.

An accountability form must be completed within 3 months of project completion.


Civil Defence
The next and final meeting for this round of the Martinborough Community Response Plan is scheduled for 11am on Saturday 25 June at the Lions' Den, 3 Oxford Street, Martinborough.  This third planning session will explore ideas or initiatives that the community could lead to build resilience and further strengthen connections and relationships.  We hope to have South Wairarapa District Council representatives in attendance, as well as business leaders from the community, Civil Defence volunteers, representatives from community groups, and anyone else from the community who would like to be involved.
