The prime responsibility of the Trust is the maintenance of Ashmeadow Woodlands. When the Trust has surplus funds it will use these to make small grants within the village. Preference will be given to projects which benefit the environment/education/recreation.

One of the grants given in 2017 was to the Arnside Sailing Club.
In all they got just under £ 30,000 of grant funding, which has allowed them to buy 5 new boats with a further 4 on order. Over their lifetime the boats should enable them to introduce a large number of local children and teenagers to sailing.
