Eleven green projects in Maidstone have been awarded a £250 grant to connect with the wildlife and nature on their doorstep and improve their local environment.
The grants are part of the Go Green Go Wild initiative which aims to improve biodiversity across Maidstone.
Formally constituted groups with an interest in improving a park, open space or community garden in the Maidstone Borough could apply. Funding was considered for wildlife projects, tree planting, biodiversity improvements, clean-up projects, materials, equipment and tools and seeds, bulbs and plants.
We are delighted so many groups came forward and applied. These projects will make a real difference to each of the areas. The groups who received the funding are:
- Valley Conservation Society
- Hayle Park Nature Reserve
- Vinters Valley Park Trust
- Hollingbourne Meadows Trust
- Friends of South Park
- Bell Lane Nature Reserve
- Marden in Bloom
- Allington Millennium Green
- West Farleigh in Bloom
- Oakwood Park Grammar
- North Loose Residents Association
Their projects will include wildflower meadows, nature garden and tools and equipment to help achieve their project goals.
Please look out for more funding opportunities, coming soon.
