This is your chance to win up to £500 for a project to help the environment.

Individuals, schools, community groups, businesses and anyone else in the North Kesteven district can submit their ideas, with residents then able to vote for their overall winner.

The chosen project will win up to £500 and the support of North Kesteven District Council’s sustainability officer to help get it started.

To enter, send a summary of no more than 200 words, how much you are applying for and your contact details to sustainnk@n-kesteven.gov.uk by Sunday, November 27.

A public vote will be open between December 5 and 18, with the winners revealed on Tuesday, December 20.

Any project is welcome as long as it will improve impact on the environment or reduce the use of finite natural resources – energy, fuel and water.

Individuals can apply, but their project must also be of some benefit to the wider community.

Coun Richard Wright, executive board member for sustainability, said: “We know that a lot of good work goes on in the district to help the environment and we want to be able to support it.”

He added: “Get thinking and good luck.”
