GRANTS of up to £25,000 are now available to organisations to help promote cycling on the Isle of Wight.

Isle of Wight Council and Community Action Isle of Wight, which first announced the scheme last month, have begun accepting applications for grants.

The money can be used for projects to encourage cycling, including cycle hire and the installation of safe bicycle parking facilities, racks and shelters.

Applications should be submitted no later than 5pm on Monday, March 31. Anyone interested in bidding should contact Philippa Daley at Community Action Isle of Wight by e-mailing pdaley@actioniw.org.uk or calling (01983) 524058.
