Over the last few years, the Parish Council has run a small grant scheme offering grants of up to £500 to village organisations and groups. This money came through the opportunity from a local developer wanting to place a drain over Parish Council owned land.

The groups that have benefited include:
Farmer's Market
Castle Donington Cricket
Orchard School
St Edwards school
Castle Donington Museum
Castle Donington Tenants and Resident's Association. More »

On top of this, the Parish Council sets a grant budget annually in January and has contributed on a regular basis to CD Museum, Citizens Advice, Volunteer Centre, sports club, etc.

The Parish Council its self applies for various grants to ensure that all possible pots of money can be accessed to ensure that all projects undertaken make use of this type of funding, and thus keeps the overall cost down where possible.

Over the last few years the Parish Council has managed to secure funding from various places including:

Tesco Bags for Life
NWLDC £20k 4 Seven

Keeping the Village Tidy

Keeping the Village Tidy

Urban grass verge cutting

In 2015/2016, the Leicestershire County Council decided to reduce the level of mowing around the urban grass verges to approximately six times a year. The Parish Council felt that this level of maintenance was unacceptable and decided to include the mowing of these areas in to the existing grounds maintenance contract. This did have a slight impact on the precept, however, the number of compliments received when everywhere else in the county wasn't being cut, outweighed the increase. The Parish Council continues to mow these verges, taking pride in the village we all alive in.

Parish Council Lengthsman

In 2016, the Parish Council had been receiving complaints about the amount of litter within the village. After discussion it was decided that it needed to address this issue by employing a Lengthsman. The term Lengthsman, originally referred to someone who kept a "length" of road neat and tidy.

Castle Donington Parish Council's Lengthsman undertakes the duties commensurate of the role of a modern-day Lengthsman. These include litter picking from the central and other areas of the parish; be the eyes and ears on the streets, undertaking minor highway maintenance duties; emptying of the village litter bins; cleaning and painting of various signs; generally assisting the existing grounds man on various other jobs and helping at all the events that the Parish Council undertakes.
