Melksham Christmas Lights Group received a large Grant in 2014 towards the incredible display in the town.

Melksham Town Council allocates part of its annual budget to donate money back into the locality through grants. The purpose of these grants is to bring real improvements to the local community and the lives of the people living there.

The 2016 round of grants is now closed. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for 2017-18 grants please email miriam@melkshamtown.co.uk or call 01225 704187.
