The Top of Town Community Association Youth Club received a £350 grant to buy five new scooters, helmets and safety gear.
It was one of six groups to receive a slice of £4,600 handed out by the town council.
The Youth Club, which was restarted a year ago, wanted to buy scooters to ensure all the children could have a chance to play.
“We have ramps and some of the children bring their scooters but it wasn’t fair for those who don’t own scooters.
Now we have five, enough for them to share,” said Mick Jones, secretary of the club.
“We’re ever so grateful to the town council. They have been so helpful to us and really support the youth club.”
The Stroud Valleys Project received £2500 to support activities to help it improve its long-term sustainability.
Stroud Sea Cadets received £250 towards kayak paddles. Stroud Local History Society received £500 towards an exhibition and Ignition Gloucestershire received £500 to support a family fun day in Stratford Park.
The campaigning group Slad Valley Action Group were also awarded £500 to help with the costs of the campaign to prevent inappropriate development in the Slad Valley.
The next deadline for grant applications is May 13, 2013. Applications forms are available from the town council offices or can be downloaded from our grants page.
