The Villages Community Fund aims to support projects which will benefit the residents of the parishes of Westhall, Holton and Sotherton.

Applications can be accepted at any time while the Fund is open. The fund is currently closed while applications received are assessed.

The purpose of the Villages Community Fund is to support any type of activity that involves local people through small community organisations that benefit their community. The activities must provide some measure of economic, environmental, educational, social or cultural benefit for people living in the area.

The Fund has been created by Temporis Wind, who will pay £9,000 annually into the Fund while the Bernard Matthews Green Energy Windfarm is operational.

Awards from the fund will not typically exceed £5,000 though a larger award may be considered for a project with clear and wide benefit to the eligible area.

Applications submitted by 31 March will be considered at the April meeting; applications submitted by 30 September will be considered at the October meeting. Time sensitive applications may be considered in the interim.
