Support for those affected by Flooding

A fundraising campaign for those affected by the flooding has been set up and is being managed by the Somerset Community Foundation

Somerset Flooding on the Levels Action Group (FLAG) has been set up to support those living on the Levels and affected by the flooding.  They are also coordinating donations of clothes, bedding, food etc.  If you would like to offer support, or find out how you can access support of this kind please visit the FLAG website.  Alternatively you can contact Heather Venn on 01823 491483.

Transition Year

The Somerset Levels and Moors Local Action Group may have closed to new applications, but we certainly haven't stopped working!  We have received a grant from Defra so that the Scheme staff can now focus attention on a new grants programme to start in 2015.  So through 2014 we will be reviewing strategies for the area, consulting with key partners and communities on the Levels and Moors and making a strong case for further European funding to support economic activity from 2015 - 2020.

We will keep you up to date with our progress via news items on the website, so keep checking back for further details.
