3.0              APPLICATION FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

3.1              Jedburgh Football FC

              There had been circulated copies of an application for Financial Assistance from the Jed Football FC for the grant of £31,016.08 towards the cost of upgrading the Football Pavilion.  Mr Melrose, Manager and a Committee Member were present at the meeting to answer Members questions.  The application explained that this was a one-off project to upgrade the Pavilion in order that it may be used for functions, meetings, trainings, tournaments and to make the building DDA compliant.  The Club had previously secured funding of £5,000 for running costs and kit and £1,000 sponsorship from local business, together with work in kind from tradesmen in the Town.  The Pavilion required the upgrade in order to keep it viable and having not applied for funding in the past, the club were unsure how to go about this and where to apply.  They had applied to the Common Good in the hope that a sum of money could be secured in order to apply to other funding sources to secure further grants.  The Committee asked if there would be a place for the pavilion once the proposed Intergenerational campus had been built.  In response Mr Melrose advised that the club would be unable to afford the proposed charges for the new facility.  Community Councillor Stewart supported the application as the Pavilion was considered an asset for the Community.  Following considerable discussion, the Sub-Committee agreed in principle to award the Jedburgh Football FC the sum of £15,000, following confirmation and receipt of all other funding and confirmation of the total costings.  The Sub-Committee further agreed that in order to assist the Club access further funding sources, support would be provided by the Funding Officer and that a further application would be considered should the Club be unable to secure the total cost of the project.

  

                        DECISION

AGREED:-

 

(a)   in principle, that an award in the sum of £15,000 be made to the Jed Football FC towards the upgrade of the Pavilion;

 

(b)        that prior to the release of the funding, the applicant confirm that all other funding had been received;

 

(c)    that the funding only be released on receipt of confirmation of total

        costings;

 

(d)     that support be provided by the Funding Officer to the Jed Football FC in order to secure further funding; and  

 

(e)    to consider a further application, should the Club be unsuccessful in  

        securing the total cost of the project.
