Energy firm ‘signs up’ to country park attractions

COUNTRY park visitors are getting a better view of what the surrounding community has to offer thanks to a grant from a renewable energy firm.

The Friends Of Ulley Country Park has used a £1,620 grant from renewable energy firm Banks Renewables to erect new notice boards at the Ulley entrance to the park which show what is on offer in the park and nearby village.

The grant was awarded to the Friends from the community fund linked to Banks Renewables’ Penny Hill Wind Farm, located outside Ulley.

Di Haswell, who is part of the Friends Of Ulley Country Park committee, said: “Ulley Country Park provides a wonderful venue for a wide range of activities, and putting up the noticeboards makes it easy for everyone to see what's happening both in the park and in the village.”

A dedicated Penny Hill Wind Farm Community Fund will provide over £500,000 of community funding over the 25-year lifespan of the Penny Hill Wind Farm.

The fund is ring-fenced for use within the parishes of Aston, Thurcroft, Treeton, Ulley and Whiston.

Projects, community groups, or voluntary organisations interested in applying for a grant of up to £3,000 should contact James Eaglesham at the Banks Community Fund on 0191 378 6342.
