South Hill Parish Hall
Work to install a Ground Source Heat Pump and a new floor at the Parish Hall in Golberdon has now started. This is a much needed refurbishment and modernisation project which will improve one of the main Parish assets. Grant funding has been obtained to cover the costs of the project and so no money has been added to the precept to meet this expenditure. This does mean that the Hall will be closed to the public for the course of the project which started on April 1st. There is also a small amount of external ground works required for the heating system and this will involve closing the recreation field whilst trenches are dug and pipes installed. Therefore, the April Parish Council meeting will be held at St Sampsons Church as stated above. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Councillor Andrew Budd has been doing sterling work getting the insurance and materials in place for us to maintain the footpaths and public rights of way around the Parish. Now that this has been accomplished we will be looking for a group of volunteers to assist the council in making the necessary repairs and improvements. Any volunteers should contact Councillor Budd to register their interest,
Community Benefit Fund
The latest instalment of the Community Benefit Fund from the Trefinnick Solar Farm has now been received by the Parish Council. The Council are inviting any residents of the Parish to contact the Parish Council meeting and put forward their ideas of how these funds could be spent. There are various rules regarding how the funds can be spent:
to use the Community Benefit Payment for charitable, educational, environmental, amenity or other appropriate purposes within the areas of the Community and, wherever possible, to apply the Community Benefit Payment towards the promotion of sustainable energy and uses
not to use the Community Benefit Payment for political, religious, entertainment or hospitality purposes, or for any purpose adverse to the Operator's interest in the scheme
The final decision on how these funds will be allocated lies with the Parish Council.
