Rural enterprises are invited to apply for the next round of EU funding from the scheme that helped set up North Marston’s successful community shop.

The LEADER programme is an EU initiative to support local rural development projects.

Rural businesses in Aylesbury Vale and South Northants can apply for grants of up to £50,000 in a new round of grant funding up to 2019.
