Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

COM­MU­NITY groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions can now ap­ply for the latest round of Shire cli­mate change grants.

Grants of up to £5,000 are avail­able through the scheme run by Le­ices­ter­shire County Coun­cil to help the groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions to re­duce their car­bon emis­sions by im­prov­ing their com­mu­nity build­ings.

Coun Pam Pos­nett, the county coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for Shire grants, said: “We want to en­cour­age groups to come for­ward and ap­ply for Shire grants as they help them to make im­prove­ments to their build­ings, par­tic­u­larly around re­duc­ing car­bon emis­sions.”

To be eli­gi­ble for a grant from the cur­rent round of fund­ing, you must ap­ply be­fore Mon- day, 30 Oc­to­ber. There will be a fur­ther round of fund­ing which will close on Wed­nes­day, 28 Fe­bru­ary 2018.
