LEADER area

  1. Hello, I have found the Magic map a little unfriendly. I run a micro bakery in the Village of Over in S Cambs. This has been trading on a part time basis for just over 2 years. We were finalists in the Cambridge Food & Drinks Awards 2015 and have an expanding customer base. We would like to consider expansion with the aim as the business grows of taking on staff. Can you confirm if we are eligible to apply for your funding please.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Mark

      Thank you for your inquiry regarding eligibility for LEADER funding. I’m afraid Over does not fall within any LEADER area. It is a funding requirement that the business\activity being funded falls within the designated LEADER area. If you wish to contact me at kieran.carr@cambsacre.org.uk I may be able to advise you on who to contact for other funding advice.
