Grant Giveaway

£11,000 and counting…

Peasedown St John’s Party in the Park is held every summer on Beacon Field, and due to it’s success every year thousands of pounds is raised annually. The majority of the money goes towards funding the following year’s event, but the organisers always set aside a small sum of money – the Party in the Park Grant Fund, to reinvest back into the village in the form of small financial grants.
