Community Spaces funding application


With great support by Nina and Karen the friends of Abbey Gardens group submitted a funding application for the Harvest Garden. Hopefully the harvest garden will be up and running early in the coming year. However to achieve this funding is essential. Hopefully Newham Parks can release some S106 funding towards the Harvest Garden but in the meantime the friends group applied for funding independently. The Community Spaces fund is one of the 3 big lottery funds, this one being administered by Groundworks UK
Groundworks UK acknowledged receiving the application. The stage one of the application process will take 8 weeks hopefully we will have good news at the end of it – fingers crossed.
