LEADER at Dalkeith Show 2017
Tyne Esk LEADER 2014-2020 attended the Dalkeith Show 2017 to advertise EU and Scottish Government grant funding available for farm diversification projects in Midlothian and East Lothian. It was a brilliant sunny day with lots of opportunity to connect with people from the local farming and non-farming communities. It was great to see some of the many areas of productivity and innovation within the farming industry.
The LEADER programme will run until the end of 2020, though due to Brexit, projects may need to be completed by late 2019. If you know of any farms that would benefit from developing a more stable income base using an innovative project idea that would benefit the local community do put them in touch. Applications will be welcomed from local third sector organisations or community groups, local agencies, public sector and from private business.
