Grants up for grabs

It was good to hear that Tesco will use some of the money they have raised from the 5p bag charge to pay for a large number of local projects, including hopefully some right here in my constituency and also elsewhere in Renfrewshire. Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens. Applications for the first round of funding for between £8,000 and £12,000 are being accepted now and will close on 27 November at noon. Greenspaces can make a huge difference so if you think you have a project that might qualify for funding or you know of a site that you think would benefit from a grant, visit www.groundwork.org.uk/Sites/tescocommunityscheme.
