The Hardwick Community Centre Working Group is delighted at the news that it has been awarded an Energy Efficiency Support Package in the latest set of awards under the Zero Carbon Communities scheme.
The Zero Carbon Communities grants were announced in early December by South Cambridgeshire District Council as part of its drive for the district to become net zero carbon by 2050. In particular it provides funding for projects to support communities to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels
The Hardwick Community Centre Working Group is working on plans for a new community centre in Hardwick with a target completion date for 2022. The grant will help with the installation of energy efficient systems in the new building.
Nicky Kerr, a leading member of the Group, put together an application in August and September. She says “I am excited to say that we were successful in our grant application and we can hopefully soon get the ball rolling on this.”
