News and Events

Last month, funding worth a total of £24,332.59 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:

Crathes Public Hall Trust - £464.51; Skateraw Hall - £2000; Maryculter Driving for the Disabled Group – £1400; Maryculter Woodlands Trust - £1118; Portlethen & District Voluntary Community Ambulance Association - £500; Panthers Basketball Club - £2480; Portlethen Paths Development Group - £2505.98; Rhythm Nation Dance Crews - £2750.47; Friends of Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool - £2095.02; Stonehaven Community Radio - £5000; 1297 Stonehaven Squadron Air Cadets - £1595.88; Stonehaven Horizon Group - £1635 and The Bellman - £787.73.  Unfortunately, this year there was no Awards Ceremony due to current restrictions.

As a result of Covid, the Meikle Carewe Community Fund did not allocate grants in 2020.  Instead, the fund is allocating twice in 2021.  It will reopen on 1st July, with a closing date of 30th September, when the second allocation of funding will take place.
