Communities in the Wadebridge area have been told they have little over six weeks to submit bids for a share of the £50,000 St Breock Windfarm fund.

The fund helps not -for-profit projects that benefit people in St Breock, Withiel, St. Wenn, Wadebridge, Egloshayle, St. Issey and St. Columb.

Last year cash went to a wide range of projects, from specialist support services for women to energy-efficient LED lighting in a community centre; from lighting equipment for a local theatre club to young peoples’ events at Cornwall Folk Festival; from support to Forest Schools to replacing broken equipment in a village playground.

The closing date for applications is 17th February.

Organisations that applied for the fund in 2016 are very welcome to apply again in 2017, regardless of whether or not they were successful then.  The fund comes from REG Power Management which operates the St Breock site. It is administered by WREN, the Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network, but all decisions on applications are made by local panels for each of the towns and parishes involved.
