Green Grants

This spring, more than £7,500 has been awarded to local groups who will be encouraging nature, enhancing the town and taking direct climate action. Projects that will be funded include improved outdoor spaces, sensory gardens and other new projects.

Here we’ll be celebrating their work and keeping you up-to-date with funding that will be available.

Grants announced in March 2023 went to: 

Deal With It for a project to enhance nature at Deal Station

Deal Radio Community Group to improve the courtyard of the Landmark Cafe

Kent Museum Of The Moving Image for LED lighting

Deal Parochial CEP School to put towards a sensory garden

Evolution Music for new equipment

Deal Repair Cafe to help people repair and recycle goods, rather than buy new

The Downs CE Primary School for new planters and garden equipment

Deal Maritime and Local History Museum to create an environmentally friendly courtyard area

And some of our allotmenters bid for funds to help with water harvesting
