[25 AUG 98] WARWICKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST PRESS RELEASE
Churchyard Group Receive Pennies From Heaven

Friends of Saint Johns Churchyard have been successful in their bid for a Redland NatureLink grant of 500 from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. The grant will assist the group in their on-going management and maintenance of the churchyard.

On Saturday 5 September local volunteers will be planting wildflowers purchased with the grant and the group will be presented with a novelty cheque designed by an artist from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

Friends of St Johns Churchyard are a group of local volunteers who got together with the aim of improving the churchyard for both wildlife and people. They have one much hard work over the past years and have won other grants such as Rural Action for both physical improvements to the church yard, research and training. The churchyard is a credit to the group and demonstrates just how much can be achieved by local people.

NatureLink enables Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to offer grants of up to 500 to local communities who want to carry out environmental projects that result in benefits to the community and to the environment. NatureLink is supported by Lafarge Redland Aggregates through Landfill Tax and is available to community groups within a 5 mile radius of the villages of Brandon in Warwickshire and Shawell in Leicestershire. Grant applications are judged on their merit and on a 'first come first served' basis.

As NatureLink operates in both Warwickshire and Leicestershire the Trust is working in partnership witli the Environmental Resources Centre in Leicester and Carolyn Holmes (LWCI Project Officer) will be happy to help and advise on Leicestershire Projects. If you are interested or have an idea for a project application forms are available now.
