DO YOU have an exciting idea, no matter how small, that could make a BIG difference to your community?

Here's your chance to get your idea funded by local people for people in the area.

'The People's Fund' (working title) is a brand new television show for BBC One which gives people who love their neighbourhood a chance to pitch ideas and projects directly to those it aids.

Ideally, the projects featured within the series should be achievable on a budget between £500 - £1,000, could start in October, and see progress within a 4-5 week period.

No matter how small the idea, serious or light-hearted the show is keen to hear from all the Barry locals who think they have a great idea or project for their community.

The deadline for applications is Friday, September 15.
