COMMUNITY groups in Audlem are being asked if they have any projects that may benefit from a government fund.

Cheshire Wildlife Trust (CWT) has applied for the government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund and are keen to work with a network of community groups that are planning nature based neighbourhood improvements.

These projects must benefit a green recovery but also health and wellbeing.

This might be the creation of a garden, meadow or woodland or the creation of some other wild space in a school or workplace.

The Trust are therefore looking for any small local groups who may have plans for such a project and are needing a practical and financial boost.

Deb Lindop, community development manager for Cheshire East, believes the scheme is of benefit to local groups.

“I’m sure this could benefit a number of local groups,” she said.

“Jan Shone, development manager at CWT who is tasked with making this all happen, would be grateful if you can have a think and let us know of any groups or projects that you are aware of through your local networks that might be ‘shovel ready’ to go.

“This is a great opportunity to benefit through Green Recovery, and to achieve important health and wellbeing outcomes for local residents.”
