Historic grant for grabs

Applications are being invited for an historic Matlock grant.

Worthy causes around the area are being invited to apply to Derbyshire Dales District Council for funds from the historic Ernest Bailey Charity.

The district council is trustee of the charity, which makes an annual grant from interest on a fund set up by local benefactor Ernest H. Bailey.

Bailey, born in 1870, owned Bailey’s Flour Mills in Lumsdale and in 1924 founded the former Ernest Bailey Grammar School in Matlock’s New Street.

Closing date for completed application forms is October 21.
