FIFC wins town council support

This evening's council meeting voted to provide an £8,000 grant to Folkestone Invicta FC's youth section. The money was the total outstanding balance of the Town and Ward grants budget, as this was the last opportunity this year to spend the money, which would otherwise have gone to reserves. The decision was referred to the full council with a request that it be supported by the last F&GP meeting, which did not have the power to award the outstanding balances of the ward grants as well as the town grant money.

I did warn the representatives of the club that they should not rely on the funding being repeated in future years, not least because I'm aware that there are other football, rugby, hockey, cricket and all sorts of other sports clubs in the town which may also be in need of some financial assistance.
