Sussex Lund Fund opens for applications

The annual launch of Sussex Lund, the grant programme of Peter Baldwin and Lisbet Rausing, take places this week. The programme supports small-scale, practical projects that improve the ecology and landscape of the High Weald.

Charities, community groups, schools, churches, parish councils, farmers and landowners are being invited to apply for grants of between £500 and £10,000.

Successful applications in 2016 resulted in improved hedgerow habitats, more flower-rich grassland, new ponds, reduced light pollution and more attractive and accessible community greenspace.

For grant criteria and the application form visit highweald.org/sussexlund or call the High Weald AONB Partnership on 01424 723011. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 2 May 2017.
