New projects to encourage sport

Nottinghamshire County Council is challenging local sports clubs and organisations to come forward with new projects that encourage people to get involved in sport.

The reward is a maximum of £1,500 to Clubmark accredited clubs and £1,000 for voluntary or community organisations.

The money can be used to help with costs such as coaching fees, facility hire, equipment costs and publicity costs but it must be spent within 12 months.
