Grants available for Cotswold heritage projects


TIME is running out for Cotswold churches to express their interest in thousands of pounds worth of funding from the European LEADER grant programme.

The grants come to an end in March next year, and funding is still available for a variety of projects, including culture and heritage. Money could be available for wall paintings, medieval stained glass or other conservation work. But churches must express their interest in applying before the end of August. Grants could cover up to 100 per cent of the cost of a project.
