Announcing The Big Pitch winners
Congratulations to the 10 finalists in The Big Pitch, the finale event of the flagship Get Set Grow business support programme that has already created 15 new jobs and launched 18 new businesses across Rochford District Council and Brentwood Borough Council. Each business pitched for a theoretical £10k through a “Dragon’s Den” style session. The judges had a very challenging job of picking the winners, who we’re proud to announce are:
1st Place: L Retrofit
2nd Place: ECOedge
3rd Place: Tutu’s Cupcakes
Thank you to The Consortium for delivering Get Set Grow on the Council’s behalf. It was funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UK SPF).

Brentwood Community Fund 2024
Brentwood Borough Council, in partnership with Axis and Seven Arches Investments Limited is pleased to launch this year’s Brentwood Community Fund, inviting local organisations and individuals to bid for funding for community projects, with the deadline set for Monday 22 April.
Applications can be made by not-for-profit organisations. Former recipients may apply if they are proposing a new project, but priority will be given to those who have not received any previous funding from the Brentwood Community Fund or the recent UK Shared Priority Fund grant programme.
Projects must benefit Brentwood communities, be delivered in the borough, and should demonstrate community involvement in its shaping and delivery. Applicants should also showcase community involvement in both the development and implementation of their projects, be able to show they are sustainable long term and must align with the Council’s community priorities.
For enquiries, contact the Community Services Department at 01277 312500 or email
