A new community greenspace grant programme has opened for applications.

Tesco announced that the money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores will be used to pay for a large number of local projects to improve greenspaces in communities across Scotland, England and Wales. The new grant programme is administered by Groundwork, working with greenspace scotland to support successful projects in Scotland.

The first funding round of the programme will close to applications on 27 November 2015 at 12 noon. This will be your first chance to submit an application for a grant of between £8,000 and £12,000 to create better and happier places where you live, although there will be two funding rounds per year over the next three years.
