The Parish Council have been approached regarding the Tesco Bags of Help grants scheme as they are looking for applications from the Mendip area. The scheme is where money is raised from the 5p bag levy and used to fund community projects. Three projects in the 200 Tesco regions will receive a grant each month, 1st place receives up to £5k, 2nd up to £2k and 3rd up to £1K. The Parish Council are looking for your suggestions.
