Successful applications to the EDF Barmoor Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund from the Parish Council, the Village Hall Committee and the Heritage Group bring good news to the village for life during and after Lockdown
These mean that the village is to get an upgrade to its Play Park Equipment, a second defibrillator will be installed on the wall of the Village Hall, and the exciting finds at Hunting Hall can be followed up.
The Playpark will see the removal of older equipment which has been the subject of criticism from safety officers, with new swings and better seating for tired parents!
The second defibrillator is being installed following receipt of advice about the distance from a defibrillator which is considered safe and appropriate.
Equipment for further archaeology and analysis of the finds at Hunting Hall will be provided
The bids were approved by the Barmoor Wind Farm Advisory Panel, a few days ago – together with others totalling over £30,000 in the area affected by the windfarm.
