Wind farm fund seeks panel members
LOCAL residents are being sought to join a panel which distributes wind farm community cash.
The Vattenfall Clashindarroch Community Fund benefits the four areas served by the Huntly, Strathbogie and Tap O Noth Community Councils and the Cabrach Community Association.
At the moment, two new members are being sought – one from the Cabrach area and the other from the Tap O Noth Community Council area (Gartly, Rhynie, Clatt, Kennethmont, and the surrounding rural areas).
The fund is managed, and the panel supported, by the independent grant-making charity Foundation Scotland.
Full training and support will be given to new members of the panel.
Anyone aged 16 or over who is resident in either of these two areas and interested in joining the panel can obtain an application form and find out more from the Foundation Scotland website – www.foundationscotlandorg/clashindarroch – or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0131 524 0300. The application closing date is October 4.
