Environmental and Social Ideas for projects in the Golden Valley

In line with other environmental groups in Herefordshire, especially the Herefordshire Green Network, we in the Golden Valley are interested in submitting project ideas for funding. There are several new funds available, and we are keen to hear from individuals and groups who have a project idea. GVAG is a registered CIC company with a Bank Account and is eligible to apply for grants. Below, we have started to list ideas and would be happy to add new ideas to the list and discuss developing funding applications. If interested, please get in contact.
