The Wind Farm at Hook Moor has now been up and running for some months. The operators (Banks Group) provide a Community Fund to which local groups (i.e. in Aberford & Micklefied) can apply. To date, we understand there have been no applications from any groups within Aberford.
The fund itself will provide £10000 per annum over the next 25 years. If you run a local group (or know someone who does!) you can check your eligibility to receive a grant via the Banks Community Fund website. Applications can also be made online through this link. We are sure there must be many local community groups who could benefit from an injection of funds, so apply now before this year’s allocation runs out.
