HEREFORDSHIRE Council is offering businesses up to £3,000 to make it easier for employees to cycle to work or work from home.

The grants can fund up to 100 per cent of the cost of new facilities or equipment, such as workplace lockers, pool bikes, cycle parking and home-working equipment.

Any business or other organisation in the county with paid employees can apply — as long as they have been in operation for at least one year.

Herefordshire Council's TravelFund grants are funded by the Department for Transport. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, October 27. 

For further details or to apply, visit or call the Delegated Grants Team on 01432 260753.
