About Ventnor Enhancement Fund
We brighten up your town!
Ventnor Enhancement Fund was created as a charity in 2006 to add those small embellishments to the town that official bodies do not provide.
Generous donations and support from residents and businesses, together with grants from the Big Lottery have enabled this work to proceed, with at least one major project per year. In this period of austerity, the activities of the VEF have become even more important. The work is carried out by a small group of volunteers, who have gained immense satisfaction from the experience of beautifying the town and adding extra facilities.
We hold monthly meetings in which we plan our short- and long-term project work and fundraising activities. Work parties are arranged to tackle new and routine projects which often involves painting and decorating or gardening. Generally these teams consist of only a few people, but a morning’s hard work is enough to make a big difference. Our fundraising activities can be quite labour-intensive but are usually great fun and lucrative. We maintain regular contact with the Town Council, offering mutual support.
