Grants available for community groups with green ideas for Redditch

Harry Leach 6th Jan, 2020

COMMUNITY and voluntary groups with green ideas for Redditch are being invited to apply for grants to help improve the cleanliness of the town.

Redditch Borough Council has released a second round of funds from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

Groups are invited to bid for up to £300 with consideration given for projects up to £1,000 where innovation or ‘overwhelming benefit’ to the community is demonstrated.

Coun Margaret Sherrey, whose portfolio covers environmental services, said: “We had some excellent projects come out of the last round of funding with lots of groups taking on the challenge of taking care of their local patch.

“Climate change is a serious problem and a problem which affects us all.

“This funding can allow groups to make a difference and see their Environmental ideas become a reality.”

The bidding will open at 9am on Monday, January 13 and close at midday on February 10.

Successful bids will be informed by March 6 and projects need to be delivered between May 1 and June 30, 2020.

Only one application per community group will be accepted and all groups must have a constitution and bank account to apply.
