The kitty was empty before we started running the 2016 events. Now the 2016 events are finished the Buckby Feast funds are now looking in better shape. The final figure for 2016 was in excess of £8000… which is a fantastic figure. It will all be used for the benefit of the village.
If you wish to apply for money for your organisation and need more information… please contact Mary McElroy (at The Peephole) or have a word with Hilary Tibbs (at the Post Office/Newsagents).
