Community projects and rural businesses can find out how to access a share of a £7 million funding pot at a meeting in Bourne later this month.

The funding comes from the Rural Development Programme which will be explained during a meeting at Bourne Corn Exchange on Thursday, September 24 from 10am until 12.30pm.

These rural development funds create an extremely important opportunity for our small businesses and community groups to contribute to our growing economy through a range of exciting local initiatives

Coun Colin Davie, executive member for economic development at Lincolnshire County Council

Grants will be shared out by Wash Fens Local Action Group (LAG), covering South Holland and villages south of Boston Bourne, and Kestevens LAG for Bourne and the Deepings to businesses supporting economic growth in rural areas.

Coun Colin Davie, executive member for economic development at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “This is a predominantly rural county and programmes like this are vital for supporting our small businesses.

“Three of the Local action Groups have already delivered £6.9 million of funding during 2007 to 2013, making a real difference to their local areas, so I am delighted to be able to announce the availability of more of these rural development funds.

“They create an extremely important opportunity for our small businesses and community groups to contribute to our growing economy through a range of exciting local initiatives.”
