Crystal Rig Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund 2014/2015
The Crystal Rig Windfarm fund is a community benefit fund available for the community of Garvald and Morham to carry out improvements to their local area in any sphere, including the environment, local amenity or tourism.
Each year, the wind farm allocates an amount of money to the community council, who then administer its disbursement to the community. The total amount of money available (£25,000 this year) is based on the installed capacity of the wind farm.
Last year, the projects funded included:
Lothian Boradband £5000
Knox Youth Group £2000
Morham Village Hall £4258
Garvald Village Hall £1827
Haddington Swimming Club £2200
Haddington Junior Hockey Club £600
Various Sports/Musical Sponsorships £3795
Garvand and Morham Christmas/Hallowe’en Parties £410
Gifford Under 5′s £508
Please note that consideration will be given to all types of project that benefit the local community, and the Community Council is keen to widen the scope of projects funded. We are particularly keen to support any aspiring young sportspeople and musicians, so whatever idea you’ve got (no matter how big or small) please consider applying. The fund is not available to projects that would be under the remit of East Lothian Council or that would be working against the windfarm.
How to apply:
Application forms are available to download on the GMCC webpage or from Phillip White at the Old School, Garvald. Complete this form with as much information as possible and return before 31st May to the Community Council. For more information please see the application form.
