Cash to support rural businesses

Rural businesses looking for cash to back their ventures are invited to find out how dedicated European funding may help them.

On Tuesday 10 October at Standlake Village Hall, they will be able to hear about businesses and community schemes that have benefitted from LEADER funding, as well as details about other grants for rural projects.

Cllr Jeff Haine, Cabinet Member responsible for the local economy said: “Applying for grants often means knowing where to go and how to get started. This event is an ideal starting point and I encourage rural businesses to find out about the many opportunities available.”

All are welcome to attend and the session starts at 2pm. Delegates can register to attend with Oxfordshire LEADER on 01235 422245 or at www.oxfordshireleader.org.uk/standlake

The Village Hall is at Rack End, Standlake, OX29 7SB.
