The newly formed Herefordshire Climate Action Partnership needs information from as many members of HGN as possible, in support of a major funding bid that they are hoping to make to the Lottery Climate Action Fund. Responses are URGENT! Read on…

Do you want to be part of our county wide Lottery Climate Action Fund bid? New Leaf Sustainable Development and the Herefordshire Green Network are working with partners from Herefordshire Council, Extinction Rebellion and Brightspace to submit a major funding bid to deliver community-led climate action across Herefordshire. We want to engage with a wide range of partners and need to submit an early outline which details what is taking place already, along with exciting potential future actions. So add your details by filling in our questionnaire – and be part of making a better future for Herefordshire!

There is a tight deadline for responses – but there will be chances to develop ideas later. Please complete the short survey using the link below, before Wednesday 2nd October!

We are now an independent organisation!

Herefordshire Green Network is now an entirely independent organisation, and the work of HGN, the steering group and the HGN coordinator is all completely voluntary.

We have also wondered about inviting membership donations from groups and individuals in the network in return for (e.g.) pages on the new HGN website, workshops, more specialised support for our countywide groups as needed. This is under discussion, and we would welcome your thoughts…
