The NCA raises thousands of pounds each year, primarily through Nunney Street Fayre, which is the NCA’s largest annual event and is organised by a sub-team of NCA committee volunteers. Money raised is then ploughed back into our village community, through NCA community events as well as via requests for projects, events etc. from different charities and/or community groups.
If you are wanting to run a village project, hold a village event, start a youth group in Nunney etc. and want financial help, please contact the NCA and as long as we receive detailed and accurate costings including formal quotes, the committee will consider the request.
Local projects which have recently benefited include:
Nunney children’s play ground
Nunney BMX track
Nunney Church roof
The NCA contributed towards the zip wire.
The NCA contributed towards the creating of Nunney BMX track.
The NCA contributed towards the restoration of Nunney Church roof.
This year, the NCA has supported and/or helped fund projects, including:
the purchasing of refreshments for the Macmillan Coffee morning
the purchasing of a mud kitchen for Nunney Pre-School
weekly maths and science revision/workshops - for young people (Year 7+) and adults
the printing costs of flyers to trial Nunney Community Lunch, led by volunteers
The NCA funded the refreshments for the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning, held in Nunney Village Hall, on 19.9.19.
‘Special thanks to all who donated cakes, raffle prizes and to the NCA for donating the teas and coffees’.
The NCA funded the full cost of a mud kitchen for Nunney Pre-School.
‘Nunney Community Association have been amazingly generous and donated this fab mud kitchen to the pre-school!’
The NCA funded the hiring of the hall and all of the consumable resources in order for Francis Hayden to deliver a weekly maths and science after-school session.
As the exam season loomed ever closer this successful weekly session saw its numbers increase. The topics covered each session were led by the individuals in the session so was as personalised as is possible.
These sessions ran during the 2018/19 academic year, until July 2019.
The NCA funded the initial printing of 500 A5 leaflets to ensure everyone in the village heard about this special lunch.
Following the hugely successful community lunch in March, the volunteer organisers decided to make it a monthly event - the first Friday of every month. This is a non-profit making event and the community lunch has subsequently paid the NCA back for the original flyers.
The NCA wishes them well with this project.
