I’m delighted to be able to tell you that Transition New Mills has been given a £500 Greenwatch Action Grant from Derbyshire County Council for the Tackling Invaders project to help us step up our efforts to deal with Himalayan Balsam this year.
This will enable us to:
- purchase protective equipment such as gauntlets
- publicise the project better
- run more events for the public by providing insurance cover
This is great news and a testament to the support of those who made the project a success last year. I hope we will be able to involve many more people this year and raise awareness to a wider audience.
