Pie & Pint evening North Lakes - How grants can help your forestry business - Forestry Commission England

Monday 19 October 2015, 6.30pm - 9.00pm

Venue: The George Hotel, Devonshire St, Penrith, Cumbria CA11 7SU

Theme: Pie & Pint evening

The Forestry Commission in the North West of England are promoting free support to forestry businesses thinking of applying for grants within the new Rural Development Programme.

Schemes include Countryside Productivity, LEADER and Growth Funds from Local Enterprise Partnerships.
These may offer grants for:
- Timber harvesting, extraction and primary processing equipment (woodfuel and timber)
- Storage to dry woodfuel
- Training
- Business support
- Co-operation, collaboration and advisory services

During the autumn and winter of 2015 some free events have been organised to inform forestry contractors and owner-producers about the grants and to promote the support being offered. There will be a particular focus on LEADER.

As there will be limited capacity we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to book a place; in the first instance we will be offering only one place per business. 

Please email Graham Simms at the Forestry Commission to book your place.
