The following organisations in each of our communities, received the highest number of votes and won funding for their projects.
Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT) is a local charity and a leading voice for wildlife conservation in Hertfordshire and Middlesex. Wheathampstead Parish Council is overseeing this project to build on a community project along the River Lea.
The Meads in Wheathampstead is publicly accessible and is already used for educating people about chalk stream environments. The river suffers in places from excessive bank erosion, silted gravels caused by low-flows and a lack of habitat variety and wildlife.

Walton & District Allotments are a small allotment association which have two sites and contain around 60 plots each. The plots currently have no toilets at either site, the funding would enable eco-toilets to be installed this would allow the allotments to be opened to projects, open days for schools, children’s groups and societies.
Funding will be used to provide a weekly term time support group for women who have suffered or are suffering from domestic abuse. Sessions will be run by a domestic abuse support worker and trained volunteers to provide a safe space for women to build confidence and connections through craft sessions. These sessions will help to reduce isolation and improve access to further support and information.
