So Southwold and the Suffolk Secrets AONB Fund

Together with our sister company Suffolk Secrets we are proud to have worked with the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) for over ten years to support the conservation and enhancement of this wonderful environment.  Thanks to the support of our staff and our loyal customers we are delighted to make a further two-year commitment to the AONB with the introduction of a £25,000 fund for 2017 and 2018 projects. 

What is the Fund for?
The Suffolk Secrets AONB Fund has been set up to support a range of activities and projects that meet the objectives of the AONB regarding enhancement of, protection of and education about the landscape features of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths.  The fund will also support activities that engage families, particularly those that promote out of season tourism and projects that support local food producers.  

The fund will give grants of up to £3000 to projects or activities that meet the fund and AONB criteria.  The grant may support a project in its entirety or part-fund it.  Projects should be completed within a year of the grant being agreed.

How to apply
All applications should be directed to Cathy Smith at the AONB following the fund guidelines and using the appropriate application form.  See contact details below.  Applications for 2017 grants will be accepted from Saturday 24th September 2016 until Thursday 10th November 2016.  The fund panel will meet in early December to decide which projects will be funded.
