Local projects, local people

The Community Grant Scheme supports communities in the Churnet Valley who  want to improve their local environment.

It is people who make the Churnet Valley what it is today. Happily, many local residents are keen to put time and energy into improving the area.

Small grants from the CVLLP have supported a wide range of initiatives from local festivals to community websites.

Several of the projects have involved restoring buildings, including: making a chimney safe at Cheddleton flint mill, mending the clock at Ledridge Church and lots of dry stone walling.

We’ve engaged with about 99 groups – and the variety of projects that have come forward has been absolutely brilliant.
