Would you like to help make the decisions about who receives grants from the St Breock Windfarm Community Fund? 

The Fund awards over £50,000 each year to local community and voluntary groups and projects, allocated across seven towns and parishes around the windfarm, and will do so for the next twenty years or so.

The Fund is administered by WREN, the Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network, but the decisions on grants are made by panels of local people representing each town and parish. Now, more people are needed to sit on the panels for Egloshayle, Withiel, Wadebridge, St Issey and St Columb.

The panels meet in March each year to make the decisions and then again in November to review plans for the forthcoming year. Before the March meeting, panel members will need to read the applications that have been made to the community fund and come along to the meeting prepared to discuss them.

Ideally, people will serve on a panel for a minimum of 3 years. No special qualifications are required, just a desire to work with others to make decisions for the benefit of the whole community.

Interested? Please contact your local Parish or Town Council who will be able to give you more details. You can also download more information from our website here.
