the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.
The principle purpose of the Longley Farm Fund is to support artistic and cultural activities, but it will also consider supporting general funding applications from voluntary groups in the beneficial area.
The fund welcomes applications from the following beneficial areas only: Holmfirth, Austonley, Upperthong, Holme, Cartworth, Wooldale, Hepworth, Fulstone and Netherthong.
Last year, five groups were awarded funding, including: Holmfirth Film Festival (£700) for production of a local film, Hepworth Band (£500) to fund a summer concert, Friends of Hinchliffe School (£500) to create an artwork to celebrate the Tour de France, and Christ Church New Mill (£500) for organ repairs.

This fund is now closed to applications - it opens again in August 2017.
