For 2021-22 we have budgeted £6000 from general funds for small grants & donations but we can also make grants for infrastructure projects using CiL (Community Infrastructure Levy) money that we receive from developers.

So far this year we have provided funding for:

  • Northchurch United Charities: £600 (donation, from general funds);
  • The School Association at St. Mary's School to provide swimming lessons and a school crossing patrol;
  • Age Concern Dacorum: £1,500 (grant for the footpath to the summer house at Sunnyside Rural Trust)
  • Northchurch Cricket Club: £10,000 (grant towards new cricket nets, from CIL funding);
  • Berkhamsted & Hemel Hempstead Hockey Club: £20,000 (grant towards the new artificial pitch, from CIL funding);

In 2020-21, we provided funding for:

  • The School Association at St. Mary's School to provide swimming lessons and a school crossing patrol;
  • Age Concern Dacorum to support vulnerable, elderly people in Northchurch;
  • Colleen Duggan, a local resident, to make medical scrubs for Watford Hospital;
  • Sunnyside Rural Trust to buy and install a defibrillator outside their farm shop in New Road.
  • The installation of a defibrillator on the outside wall of Tesco Express.


In response to Covid and lockdowns, we  focussed on supporting the elderly in 2020-21. 
As the graphic below shows, a high proportion of Northchurch residents are over 65.
