Fourteen Local Groups Benefit from Wind Farm Community Fund

Last month, funding worth a total of £33,141.10 was awarded to a range of local groups and projects in the area of benefit of the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund.

RES, a leading independent renewable energy developer, established the Meikle Carewe Windfarm Community Benefit Fund to support local groups and projects. Funding is available for the benefit of not-for-profit groups and organisations in the Community Council areas of Crathes, Drumoak & Durris, Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore, North Kincardine Rural, Portlethen & District and Stonehaven & District.  Administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), applications to the fund are assessed by a Decision-Making Panel made up of representatives from all five Community Council areas.  The fund is available annually for the lifetime of the wind farm.

Successful applicants this round were:

Drumotters Swim Club - £1230; Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore Community Council - £2209; Newtonhill Community Hall Association - £4518.66; Friends of Newtonhill School - £2560.74; Cookney Hall Baby & Toddler Group - £2323.10; Maryculter Driving for the Disabled - £3000; Portlethen Primary Together - £2750; Jubilee Hall - £1500; Hillside Parents Group - £4998; Kincardine & Mearns Citizens Advice Bureau - £2349.60; Stonehaven Community Radio - £1000; Stonehaven Horizon Project - £500; Mearns Singers - £1600 and Stonehaven & Area Riding Club - £2602.

Unfortunately, this year there was no Awards Ceremony, however we hope to reintroduce this in 2022.
