River Wade with Booking.com

Nature Conservation Lewisham

18 Booking dot com group with rubbish A team from Booking.com with rubbish found in the Quaggy

As part of the 3 Rivers Clean Up a team from Booking.com came to help clean the River Quaggy in Manor Park. By the end they had 10 bags of rubbish, an old typewriter and a chair. Luckily we didn’t find that much Himalayan balsam, but it is still quite early in the year, so another river wade will be due! If you would like to take part in an event, please check out the 3 Rivers Clean Up blog for dates that sessions will be running.

A big thanks to the team from Booking.com and to all the volunteers that will be joining us over the next 3 weeks. Your help is invaluable and Lewisham’s rivers will be better for you.

Groundwork – Our Space Award

Our Space Award

The Our Space Award is a grant scheme that aims to help Londoners green their city through active community engagement and participation. It will support Londoners of all ages and backgrounds, communities and schools in improving community open spaces, making them inclusive places for all to enjoy.

Who do we help?

We help community groups of three or more people who meet regularly. Your group does not have to be formally arranged or constituted, but it does need to put energy and enthusiasm into your project, and your group needs to be based in London. We support improvement projects across all types of open space – in parks, on housing estates, in town centres, in woodlands and in school grounds.

What support is available?

We offer three tiers of grants going from £500 all the way up to £5,000:

    • Small grants of £500 up to £1,000;
    • Standard grants of £1,000 up to £3,000; and
    • Flagship grants of £3,000 to £5,000.

When should my project take place?

We expect to inform applicants to the first round that they have been successful in June, with project activities to be completed in September, when monitoring information will be due.

How to apply

Applications are now open. The deadline for this round is 30 April 2018.

Download the guidance information and application form.
The dates of the second round are yet to be decided, but we anticipate the application window to be open from June to August and project activities to take place from September through to December.

If you have any questions about applying or about the grant scheme, we’re here to help. Please get in touch with Martin Petry: martin.petry@groundwork.org.uk | 020 7239 1292
