Community groups and parish councils are reminded not to miss the April 1 2013 deadline for applications to the Community Wildlife Grant fund.

The fund managed by Lincolnshire County Council aims to assist projects that encourage community involvement with nature conservation projects, promote, improve and protect biodiversity and promote access to and enjoyment of the countryside.

Last year £7,839 was awarded to 24 environmental projects throughout Lincolnshire. Grants are available for between £50 and £500, up to a maximum of 75 per cent of the total cost.

The remaining 25 per cent could be in the form of volunteer time to undertake the work. Applications will be approved at the discretion of the county council’s Environmental Services and will be awarded in two rounds in April and September 2013.

To apply for a grant please contact Matthew Davey on 01522 782070.
