Cloughmills Community Action Team have just received financial support from Glennmonts’ Gruig Wind Farm.
Earlier this week, Caroline Galbraith, Asset Manager at Gruig Wind Farm, and Geoff Hoffheinz, Technical Manager for Glennmont Partners, presented this year’s community fund payment of £3,537.36 to Cloughmills Community Action Team at the Incredible Edibles Community Garden at the Old Mill in Cloughmills.
The Gruig wind farm, near Corkey, was built by RES in 2009, when it created a special community fund to support a number of local community groups.
Geoff Hoffheinz, who was on his first visit to the project said: “I am seriously impressed with the project and the level of commitment shown by the volunteers here in Cloughmills.”
“We are delighted to be supporting such a worthy project that brings together all age groups within the community, and I look forward to coming back again to see how the site develops”.
Patrick Frew, Cloughmills Community Action Team added, “In just 12 months the site has undergone major transformation and we have big plans for further development of the site. This is a project that hopefully will be going for generations to come”.
