Countryside project needs support

by

Rumours have emerged again of funding cuts for the Pang Kennet and Lambourn Countryside Projects.

Sheepdrove raised awareness of this in Feb 2009 with a published letter to local Councillor, Graham Jones. People rallied to the cause, and instead of completely cutting all cash from West Berkshire, the council voted to reduce its withdrawal of funds by half.

Nevertheless, this was a severe blow to the Pang Kennet and Lambourn Countryside Projects.

The projects carried on, but now the programme of countryside events, walks, nature conservation teams, Barn Owl groups, along with professional farm wildlife advice and biodiversity projects might be under threat once again. A stalwart projects volunteer, Dick Greenaway, has contacted parish councils and other allies, to ask for letters of support to go to councillors at West Berkshire. 

We too urge the council to continue to back the projects, which draw much more money into the district than they spend, and provide services to the countryside which would otherwise not happen. Learn more about the projects…
