The RHS, Groundwork and City of Trees are working together to ask everyone who lives, works, studies or volunteers in Greater Manchester to share their thoughts on making Greater Manchester greener by filling in a short survey.

This will inform the €4.5 million IGNITION project that is developing investment streams to increase green infrastructure across Greater Manchester by 10% by 2038.

The Government is inviting applications from community-led organisations working in partnership with local authorities and other local partners to apply for grants of up to £15,000 to establish new ‘pocket parks’ or up to £25,000 to help restore and renovate existing parks which have fallen into disrepair, bringing them back into public use.

Deadline for receipt of applications and supporting documents is 5pm on the 31 December 2019. For more information see here.
