Through discussions at the Staffordshire Rural Forum Community Themed Action Group, it has been suggested that it could be useful to organise some workshops on the transfer of community assets covering such issues as:
Environment, Rural, Sustainability & Animals
Eleven bids were considered by the Local Action Group on 29 January with most being invited to progress to full application.
It was also decided that the 2nd call would be across all priorities (which include enhancing rural services, and cultural and heritage activity) and would probably go out mid- March with a deadline for bids in May.
