Has anybody:

tried to get one

managed to get one

have any thoughts on the scheme

is it only for people who already own a million pounds worth of farm

Anyone had any experience of Business Link - is it a government agency/quango?

Try to be as kind as you can

I have got small grants (£1000)from Co-op, a local Grassroots Assoc gave us £2500 and Waitrose £330. It all helped us to set up a new apiary.

Lottery useless!

Thanks Russel, yes I have looked at them, usefulish.

Well done Heather, it's good to hear of someone getting grassroots support.

Heather, is this for your own business or to assist your local BKA?
