The Villages Community Fund aims to support projects which will benefit the residents of the parishes of Westhall, Holton and Sotherton.
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 can be submitted at any time when when the fund is open and will be considered by the panel on a rolling basis.
UPDATE MARCH 2021 – the fund has a remaining balance of £3,615 and so this is the maximum that can be applied for at present.
