Somerset County Council have put aside £1m in a Climate Emergency Fund that will be spent on practical projects that might help to reduce emissions, consumption, restore biodiversity and raise awareness in our county. Each Parish has been asked to consider any suitable projects in order to bid for funding between £5k and 75k. This will be an agenda item on our November meeting and any ideas should be submitted to the clerk as soon as possible so that they can be researched before and discussed at the November meeting. Application dates are 12th Nov, 1st Dec and 12th Jan 2021.
