Bid to Europe - wellbeing, salt and tourism

Bid for an EU grant, to help with promoting the heritage of salt, failed when we couldn't even get the application completed - because not one of the nine organisations from five countries would commit themselves to act as the Lead Partner and take responsibility for managing the paperwork and financial form filling on behalf of the whole project.

It's a risk averse world. But it has meant that a possible 250,000 euros now isn't available to help promote the heritage of traditional salt making in Spain, Portugal, Germany, UK and Bulgaria. Thats about £56,000 lost to the UK salt projects to help tourism, the ECOSAL-UK Salt Network and SMEs in Cumbria, Cornwall and Wales.
