The Gladestry Community

Gladestry Active Community Fund


The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.

Since its inception the fund has given financial support to :

  • A very successful production of Alice Through The Looking Glass
  • The setting up of the Gladestry Acorns Playgroup
  • The purchase of tables and chairs for the Village Hall
  • A film-making project for the Gladestry Youth Club
  • The purchase of a marquee for the Village Hall
  • The staging of an al fresco performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream"at The Foyce.
  • A loan towards the funding of a PhotoVoltaic array for the Village Hall
  • Scaffolding to enable restoration of the school bell

The fund is administered by a small committee; its members are keen to deploy the money creatively. The Officers are:- John Milsom Chairman – : Bob Terry Treasurer : John Cook Secretary : plus four representative members.

If anybody in the community has a project, which they may feel suitable for funding, they are invited to apply to one of the above officers. ​
