Apply for the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Programme today!

26 Oct

Tesco Bags of Help funds local projects that improve the environment. Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. Grants will be awarded to voluntary or community organisations, schools, health bodies, Parish/Town Councils and local authorities, social housing providers and others.

The projects must meet the criteria of promoting community participation in the development and use of outdoor spaces. Projects that would typically receive funding (but are not limited to) include: purchasing bee hives and seeding wildflower meadow on a community allotment, developing a community garden or orchard, supporting a gardening project which helps local isolated residents form a gardening club, helping to set up Britain in Bloom local group, purchasing plants, planters, forks, spades and compost  and funding a series of summer events in a local park.

Bags of Help is always open to applications from community projects.

Three local community projects will be voted on in Tesco stores each month across Tesco regions throughout England, Scotland and Wales. In each region, the project that received the most votes from all stores in their region will receive a grant of up to £5,000. The second placed project receives up to £2,000 and third placed up to £1000. Every year, over 7000 projects will receive funding through this scheme.

Road Resurfacing – Wharncliffe Side

21 Oct

Road resurfacing in the Wharncliffe Side area has been rescheduled. To minimise disruption work will be carried out during school half term, week commencing Monday 24 October.
This work will take approximately 1 week to complete and the roads will need to close to do the work safely. A schedule of works is included at the end of this letter providing more information. Our hours of work will be 7.30am – 5.00pm, Monday to Friday only.
Please note there will be no on-street parking on the roads that we are resurfacing – vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place please avoid parking your car on the road. The work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. We will tow cars that are delaying our works.
Temporary road signs will also be displayed before work starts, confirming the dates of work and parking restrictions.
Please note that diversion routes will be in place where needed. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.

Parking and access arrangements
There will be no on-street parking or access to properties on the roads we are working on, during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times.
