Warwick District Council is encouraging businesses from Kenilworth and the rest of the borough who have been affected by coronavirus restrictions to apply for a support grant.

Businesses forced to close during the latest lockdown period may be eligible for a Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG). Such businesses will include: non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality venues.

You can apply by visiting the Council's website.

Businesses that are not eligible for this grant can, however, apply for an Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) of £1,000. The closing date for applications is Monday 30th November.

"Once again I would like to extend my thanks to our Finance team, who have worked tirelessly to put the necessary processes in place.”
