TRUSTEE GUIDELINES The Thriplow Daffodil Weekend Trust Deed provides for making grants to “such charitable bodies as the Trustees in their absolute discretion think fit” and which are located in the Civil Parish of Thriplow. (Copies of the Trust Deed are available from the Chairperson of the Trust). When considering applications the Trustees will apply the following guidelines. Applications should be signed by appropriate officers of the organisation. These persons should not be members of the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend Committee or Trust. Applications will be invited annually in February and considered after the Daffodil Weekend when available funding is known. Awards will be announced at the Annual Open Meeting usually held in June. Applications should be made for specific items or purposes and should not be made to cover annual running costs. However, the Trustees may, in their absolute discretion, think it fit to support other purposes. The monies awarded against successful applications will remain available until the following April; if the monies are unclaimed at that time the award will automatically lapse unless special arrangements are agreed. Applications will be considered for the funding of projects that may extend over more than one financial year, or where payments may be extended over such a period of time. However, the availability of funds in subsequent years will be dependent on the success of future Daffodil Weekends. Where substantial sums are requested towards the funding of costly and ongoing projects, full written proposals and costings should be submitted in advance along with the Application. The full financial contribution of the Trust must be agreed in advance. Grants will only be awarded retrospectively in very exceptional circumstances. Payments will normally be made against invoices or letters of acceptance of a quotation. The Trustees, at their discretion, may waive these requirements in appropriate circumstances. The Trustees may reserve funds to cover future running costs for the Daffodil Weekend. They may also reserve funds for agreed long-term projects and/or as contingency for unforeseen emergency requests.

The Thriplow Daffodil Weekend  youth award for good citizenship


This Award aims to encourage good citizenship by recognising members of the village under the age of 21 years who participate in projects which directly provide benefits for others, or their environment, particularly those less privileged, either locally, nationally or internationally.

Applicants must be resident in the parish of Thriplow and not more than 21 years of age.

Applications will normally be considered by all the current Trustees at the time of the annual general application of grants. If no suitable application is before them, the Trustees may make no award that year.

Successful applicants shall provide to the Trustees a written Report of 500 to 1000 words together with relevant graphic material in the year following the Award, or at some later suitable date of not more than two years after the Award subject to prior agreement of the Trustees. 

Recipients shall be encouraged to make a presentation, based on their experiences, and report to a meeting at which all members of the village shall be invited (which may be the traditional Open Meeting). 

Recipients shall prepare a summary of the Report to be submitted to the Thriplow Society and to Thriplow News.
