The Sleaford-based Lincolnshire Community Foundation is inviting community groups within a 10-mile radius of Bicker Wind Farm to apply to the Bicker Trust for a 
grant.

This means most communities between Bicker and Sleaford would be eligible including Heckington, Billingborough, Swaton and Helpringham.

The funding is supplied by developers of the wind farm at Bicker Fen.

The next closing date for applications is just weeks away on October 1.

Preference has and will continue to be given to schemes that benefit people living within a five-mile radius.

Examples of funded projects include community building improvements (new windows, heating system), sensory gardens, village amenities (ponds, play areas), environmental awareness workshops for young people and wildlife 
meadows.

Successful applicants include individuals, community groups, school PTAs, pre-schools, youth groups, village halls and environmental projects.

To obtain an application form, or for more information, contact Sue Fortune at the Community Foundation on 01529 305825.
