Attend a Forestry Commission event

The Forestry Commission is running a series of local events for forestry contractors and owner-producers to provide a detailed overview of the grants available via the Rural Development Programme for England (2014 – 2010) and practical advice on how to apply.

There are two types:
• Our pie and pint evenings are an informal networking opportunity to discuss what grant schemes are available and your potential application. Pie and pint (or your choice of beverage) provided.
• Our application masterclasses explain in detail how to create the best possible grant application. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.

These events will also explain how some can access free, one-to-one advice from the Forestry Advisory Consortium England (FACE) on what the right technical solutions and best grant scheme is for your business.

To register, identify your local event from the list below and contact the Area office organising it using the details provided. There will be a limited capacity at each event and so we encourage you to register as soon as possible to guarantee your place.
