Leader of Mendip District Council, Cllr Ros Wyke, said: "The resilience of our local businesses is critical at this time.

"We understand how much these grants can make a real difference. The council's dedicated staff are focused on efficiency, processing applications knowing that businesses need these funds for survival.

"We would urge those who have not completed the online form to act now."

  • Application forms are easy to navigate and can be found on Mendip District Council's website.
