Closing Loops Pots of Possibility Log

Some great projects have come forward to apply for a Pots of Possibility Your Pots grant. Since our local community  – that’s YOU – will be voting on who should get the money, you’ll probably want to hear all about those projects.

The Your Pots grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 are to support projects that will have a positive, long-term impact on the environment and people of North Lancashire, whether that’s by reducing waste, providing healthy, sustainably produced food or inspiring people to change the way they buy and use everyday items.

Organisations will present their project ideas at the community voting day on Saturday 18 November, and the audience will vote on who should get the money. To be part of that audience, register here.
