Hydro Community Fund to Open

The Community Hydro has been in operation for close to two years. The overriding reason to build the Hydro was to generate funds for the community of Braemar.The scheme has performed to expectations and at the September AGM the members approved the first transfer of £7,000 to a Community Fund. This fund is held by Braemar Community Limited (BCL) and terms for the operation of the fund have been agreed.
A five member panel has been appointed to distribute the funds, based on nominations from various local organisations. A short application form has been prepared and further background information is available with the application. Local groups with funding needs are encouraged to review the application and consider if they wish to apply. The application deadline for this initial round is 15 April 2018 and the panel will consider all applications received by that date.
Application forms are available online at www.braemarhydro.org.uk , by email request to braemarhydro@gmail.com or at the Tourist Information Centre in the Mews.
