Countryside Stewardship Facilitation Fund – Great Eau

In early 2018 the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project (LCSP) was awarded over £43,500 to run a Facilitation Fund group with farmers and landowners along the Great Eau catchment over three years.

Since the start of the project the funding has enabled the LCSP to facilitate the delivery of workshops and presentations to demonstrate and discuss farming techniques to help protect and improve the chalk stream habitat along the Great Eau corridor.
