Commemorating World War One centenary: Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils small grants scheme

Many legacies were born out of the First World War, from the creation of the Royal British Legion, founded in 1921 by veterans of the conflict and their families, to the development of everyday products such as the wrist watch, trench coat and paper tissues. 

The centenary year gives an opportunity for communities to mark this legacy by exploring, conserving and sharing their own local heritage of the First World War, from memorials, buildings and sites, to photographs, letters and literature.

In support of the landmark year, Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils are providing a special small grants scheme which local town and parish councils and community groups can apply for to help them mark the centenary.

Local people can apply for funding of up to £300 per project.

To apply for a grant, please send the following details of your project to by no later than Thursday 11th October 2018.
