The two images above will remind us that it’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good! But, in this case, the village bus shelter is a deserving exception, with its bid to the EDF Community Wind Farm trust netting the funds it needs to re-roof and re-decorate the structure, using the ideas from the first school.
Thanks to the Fund, the First School, and to project leader Rebecca Maitland for making it happen!
Below is the table of all the successful bids this time around, so you can see where the money goes, and to inspire you to apply for funds for your project, the next time round. Money goes to the communities closest to the wind farm first, so don’t be shy!
