Drop-in to find out how the HPC Community Fund could help

April 11, 2019

If you feel that your community is impacted by the Hinkley Point C (HPC) build and could benefit from the funding available, then a visit to one of the upcoming drop-in days being held across Sedgemoor and West Somerset could help. Somerset Community Foundation (SCF) manages the HPC Community Fund to help local projects mitigate the community-level impacts of the Hinkley Point C development. So far, almost £2 million has been awarded in grants.

Luke Mitchell, Programme Manager at SCF, said: “If you feel Hinkley Point C is impacting your community and have an idea for a project that could help address this, then come along – there’s no need to book. We’ll be on-hand to chat about our Small Grants Programme and how the HPC Community Fund could help bring your ideas to life. Just drop by anytime between 10am and 4pm.”

The dates and locations planned for the next drop-in days are:

  • Wednesday, May 22: Morland Hall, Morland Estate, Highbridge TA9 3FU
  • Tuesday, July 30: Holford Village Hall, Holford TA5 1SD
  • Tuesday, September 17: Nether Stowey Library, Castle St, Nether Stowey TA5 1LN
  • Wednesday, October 23: Minehead Eye Café, 1 Mart Rd, Minehead TA24 5BJ

The next two deadlines to apply for funding from the HPC Community Fund Small Grants Programme are Friday 10 May followed by Friday 28 June. For more information, please visit:
