Just to let you know that applications are now open for Capital Clean-up grants and free clean-up kits for 2015.
Grants of £500-£1500 are available for community groups, charities, small businesses, schools etc. These are mainly for materials and equipment to help spruce up neglected spaces. Capital Clean-up activities this year will run from 15 May-14 September 2015. These grants can be used to further support your Pocket Parks, as long as you can demonstrate that you meet the criteria – see the above link for more info.

There is no such thing as a typical Capital Clean-up! Past projects have included creating a garden in a neglected walkway, picking litter out of the Regent’s Canal, painting murals and building raised beds. Take a look at the case studies for more ideas.
So do encourage groups to apply. Deadline is 16 March 2015.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
