Apply now for village grants

Villages in the East Midlands have one month left to apply for a share of £5 million National Lottery cash to create exciting community enterprises that will help to revitalise their area and meet the needs of local people.

Projects have until 5pm on Thursday October 20 to apply for up to £30,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Village SOS Active competition, which follows hot on the heels of the primetime BBC One series, Village SOS.
