It is here at last, after much teasing here we are launching the scheme at our first non-meeting!

We have identified a pot of funding which we are making available in small grants to full members of Natural Kirklees. We hope this will allow member groups to embark on projects they have had in mind for some time but couldn’t raise the funding for and also we hope it will inspire new groups to get going on their first project.

We will be offering grants from £50 to £750 but would like to see more applications for smaller amounts as this will allow there to be more successful applications. Don’t let this put you off from applying for the bigger amounts, you don’t know if you don’t try.

Attached to this letter are the application form and the terms and conditions relating to the scheme, please read these fully before applying.

Please complete and sign your applications before submitting them to Natural Kirklees at before close of business (5:30pm) on Friday 3rd April the applications will be dealt with promptly and decisions will be made known to applicants on Monday 20th April. Then the fun can begin!

If you have any questions please contact me and I will do my best to help from the comfort of my self isolation facility, I currently have a cold which I do not think is linked to Covid19.

Speak to you all soon.
