The market is run on a voluntary basis with the support of the council and all profits are invested in the local community primarily through grants to voluntary and community organisations in the area.

The objectives are to promote healthy lifestyles, outdoor activity and community regeneration in New Ferry. Grants are for a maximum of £250 although you can apply each year for ongoing projects.

Please note: applications can only be accepted from organizations with a strong local connection to New Ferry, sorry but we cannot support national charities.

General Eligibility Criteria

  • Only “not for profit” organisations will be funded.
  • Organisations must have a separate bank account that requires 2 signatures to be eligible. Consideration will be given to smaller organisations if they use a larger organisation to administer the grant on their behalf.
  • We will consider applications for holidays, parties, food or outings if it they will benefit the local community.

How can I apply?

Grove Street School

We support the school through direct grants for projects such as the greenhouse, fruit trees and the garden.

The cafe is run by hard working volunteers and the profits all go back to the school.

The market would like to thank the school for the use of the car park on market days.
