Ten local community groups received cheques from Sunninghill and Ascot Parish Council, who had nearly £10,000 to award, thanks mainly to the hugely successful 2018 Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre, of which Ascot Racecourse was a sponsor.

The Street Fayre produced £7,500 and the Council is adding £1,750 from the Parish Council Grant Allocation. Councillors approved all this year’s applications for grants, covering diverse projects - from disabled toilets at Sunningdale Bowling Club, to hammocks for the newly-formed Explorers unit at the Sunnningdale Scout group.

The largest grant went to Ascot & District Day Centre which has provided home from home care for Ascot and the Sunnings elderly residents, for 40 years. Many members are collected daily by the Centre’s mini buses. A hot meal, refreshments, activities and a number of personal care services, are provided and greatly enjoyed by Centre users. The Council cash will help with running costs.

The next Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre will be held on Sunday 22nd November 2020.
