Post Office branches in England (excluding Crown branches) can now apply to receive up to £10,000 to support a new scheme or service for their local community.

•Partnership with a local charity to provide a meeting space, notice board and other forms of support
•A hub or meeting space for community groups involved in local issues, such as neighbourhood planning

Community Litter Pick

The Community Litter Pick was a great success thanks to all who participated.


'Spring Clean' in Castle Donington (29 June 2013) resulted in over 80 bin liner bags of rubbish being picked up. Great job, well done – the first of many.

"Well done and thanks to all those who participated".

A real sense of pride was felt by those who participated. Thanks to the Cadets and local residents for their help and support. A small amount of time given has made such a difference in the community that they live in! You should all be proud: thanks to everyone who took part. More »

Let's hope that this is just a start and that next time we will see more people wanting to take pride and join in such a green initiative.

Quote from one of the young people: "Mess creates mess, a cleaner street promotes a sense of pride and the less likelihood that someone will make a mess" – What a
true comment!

An area that looks good will suffer less and will actually thrive and blossom. Let's take the opportunity and
pride and look after our thriving and clean community. » Less
