Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Town Council is set to decide to award Coronation Grants to those wishing to celebrate the upcoming coronation.

That's one of the main decisions being proposed at the upcoming Resources Committee meeting on Monday.

The Town Council ran a similar scheme for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee where £50 was offered to applicants to support community events to purchase food, decorations or hall hire.

This time around the Council are proposing to up the overall budget to £100 per applicant with an overall budget of £2000. They are also proposing to tweak the criteria to include a bigger time where events.

It is likely that Town Councillors will approve the recommendation.
