Grants are on offer from three windfarm developments to help local community groups improve their environment.

All bids for the funding must clearly demonstrate the project's environmental benefit but a wide range of schemes could be eligible.

They include ones promoting energy efficiency, wildlife conservation, waste recycling and car sharing. Other ideas are welcome.

The Glassmoor Local Environment Fund has money available for groups from Whittlesey, Pondersbridge, Ramsey Mereside, Eastrea and Coates. Any applications in the current bidding process must be in by June 26.

The Whitemill Environment Fund has grants for groups in Coldham, Ring's End, Friday Bridge and Elm. Its closing date for bids is July 31.

And the Ransonmoor Community Fund is open to groups from Benwick, Wimblington and Doddington. Applications must be in by September 1.

Projects that have previously won grants from the Glassmoor fund include a community wildlife garden, LED lighting for an indoor bowls club and a compost toilet for an allotment.

· For more details about all three funds, application forms and advice, call Rebecca Robinett, Fenland District Council's Street Pride coordinator, on 01354 654321 or email: rrobinett@fenland.gov.uk
