Update 31 May 2022 – the fund is now closed as all of the funding for 2022 has been awarded. The Fund will not re-open until 2023.
The Villages Community Fund aims to support projects which will benefit the residents of the parishes of Holton, Sotherton and Westhall.
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.
Applications can be made at any time when the Fund is open and will be considered by the panel on a rolling basis. Applicants should check that they meet NCF general eligibility criteria.
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.
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.
