Community groups can get up to £3,000 to help become more energy efficient and reduce the amount of energy they use.
Each grant is a share of a £55,000 pot made available by South Cambridgeshire District Council to help parish councils, charities, sports and social clubs, not-for-profit organisations and other voluntary groups become greener.
Cllr Simon Edwards, cabinet member for finance, said: “It’s an effective way for us to give volunteers a helping hand to make their buildings more energy efficient, and in turn reduce the amount of money they spend on energy bills.
“This will hopefully leave them with a little spare which I’m sure they’d much rather spend on providing their activities to residents. I’ve seen first-hand how much of a difference some extra insulation can make at Barton Village Hall, and it really is worthwhile.”
Grants will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Find more at scambs.gov.uk/community-energy-grant.
