With the close of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival, The Council is now looking ahead to 2019 and the award of their three-year grant funding to support the event management of Carnival. In order to ensure a fair and transparent process for awarding the funding, a Grant Funding Advisory Panel is being formed to provide a diverse view from the local and Carnival communities on the expressions of interest submitted.
We have already extended invitations to resident associations, organisations involved in Grenfell support, as well as the Carnival community, and we welcome the valuable contribution to this panel of councillors for wards within the Carnival footprint. I gratefully ask if you could collectively consider the offer of two places on the panel and nominate two councillors to take on this role on behalf of you all.
The Panel is expected to attend a presentation day in October, to evaluate the expressions of interest received from those organisations keen to be considered for the grant award.
Our deadline for expressions of interest to join the panel is 30 September, so I look forward to your nominations emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact Suzel Pitty, Interim Head of Culture email@example.com | 07957 556 582)
