Ten local projects receive funding from the Lake District Foundation
The Lake District Foundation has revealed the ten projects which will receive funding from the latest round of grant funding. The successful projects from across Cumbria each will receive between £1,000 and £2,500.
In total, 27 applications were received, making it a difficult task to choose which projects should benefit from funding.
Sarah Swindley, CEO Lake District Foundation said: “It’s fantastic to see the local conservation work carried out across the county. Often, this is mainly led by volunteers doing amazing things in their free time. Our natural world would be much poorer without them and we are happy to support where we can. It’s thanks to our work with local tourism businesses and visitors that we are able to generate this funding and we would like to thank them for their ongoing support.”
The chosen projects were each awarded funding based on criteria including links to the environment, wildlife and cultural heritage.
Growing Well School children will be invited to visit their site at Sizergh Farm to learn how food is grown, what it needs to grow, get hands on in an activity and discover other wildlife, inspiring future generations to get involved in horticulture and the natural world.
Bee Hide Project (Heron Hill School) will provide a safe, inclusive, viewing area for the children and the wider community to enjoy and learn about bee keeping and the importance of bees in our ecosystem.
The Herdwick Sheep Breeder’s Society was awarded funding for the repair of their marquee which suffered storm damage. This is vital to the future of our local shows and links strongly to our World Heritage status.
Wildlife and Heritage Garden (Calderbridge and Ponsonby Communities) aims to rejuvenate the community areas to attract more wildlife and in so doing bring together different generations.

Swifts in the Community (SITC) have an army of volunteers who monitor the numbers of nesting swifts, which are in decline due to modern building design. They also give lots of local advice about how best to support these world travellers.
Staveley Woodlands (Cumbria Wildlife Trust) is a recently extended nature reserve. The project will involve walling off a section of land, hedging and the installation of bird and bat boxes, as well as creating a trail guide and way markers to guide people around the reserve.
Space Invaders (South Cumbria River’s Trust) This is an ongoing project aimed at eradicating Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) such as Himalayan Balsam and allowing native wildlife to thrive.
Farming with Nature (Ullswater Catchment CIC) will see 40 wooden cages, each planted on farmland with one oak tree and surrounded by other scrub plants, providing habitat for other wildlife. The trees will help to improve soil structure and aid flood management.
Coniston Wildflower Meadow (Coniston Parish Council) will see the community space in the centre of the village turned into a beautiful wildflower meadow.
