Freshwater Parish Council Passes £50,000 Gift To Nature Grant Landmark With Latest Donation

A local council group has continued its commitment to aiding a local charity, handing over its latest donation earlier this month.

Freshwater Parish Council has been awarding Community Grants to Gift to Nature for several years and continues to invite organisations to apply for funding.

A spokesperson for Freshwater Parish Council said:

"We have a long-standing tradition of supporting Gift to Nature through community grants, having contributed over £50,000 over the years.

"In the year 2023-2024 alone, the council awarded an £8,000 grant to this valuable organisation.

"This funding plays a vital role in maintaining and enhancing local natural sites that are beloved by the community."

High Sheriff Graham Biss, managing Director Gift to Nature, added:

"Freshwater Parish Council’s support for Afton Marsh and Golden Hill Country Park Gift to Nature sites is greatly appreciated and important to keep these wonderful sites open and free to use.

"Afton Marsh and Golden Hill are some of Gift to Nature’s most used and loved sites.

"Last year we were delighted to welcome both Freshwater & Yarmouth and Shalfleet Primary Schools to Golden Hill Country Park for a day of outdoor learning."
