KEIGHLEY-district community groups are being invited to apply for grants of up to £5,000 to fund climate action projects.

Bradford Council is offering support for schemes that reduce carbon emissions, encourage greener travel and lifestyles, cut food waste or increase biodiversity.

The council is sharing £360,000 between its five area offices, including Keighley.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, portfolio holder for healthy people and places, said: “This fund is a great opportunity to engage local communities in climate action and get them involved in making positive changes. We would encourage groups to apply if they strongly believe that their projects can make a very real and lasting difference to their local carbon footprint.”
