We need suggestions on how to spend money!

A solar power generating plant on Wroughton Airfield is making grants available to parishes local to the solar park. Grants of up to £2000 are available to support any community scheme and up to £20,000 to support educational projects of a scientific nature.

Working with Ogbourne School, we intend to bid for the large grant to fund a green energy project in the school. But we would also like to bid for a grant of £2000 to support a project in the parish. One suggestion is to enhance the nature reserve behind Wetpits to provide a better area to support diversity of flora and fauna, whilst retaining the opportunities for adventurous play currently afforded by the area.

But do you have any other suggestions??? If so, please contact John Hetherington by the end of August on john@teamhetherington.co.uk.
