Hardwick Community Centre awarded an Energy Efficiency Support Package

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.”

Covid-19 Communications

Update: 07/11/2020

We are all working hard to stop people catching and spreading Coronavirus – but infections are rising which is putting yourself and your loved ones at risk.

So the Government has introduced new rules across England to stop Coronavirus from spreading.

In particular, the Government has told us to:

  • Stay at home unless you have a specific reason to go out like exercise or going to school or college.
  • You can leave home for medical or safety reasons, to get food and other essential shopping, or to provide care for others.
  • Households can form a ‘bubble’ with one person who lives on their own.
  • Children can move between homes if their parents are separated.
  • Please work from home wherever you can.
  • Do not to meet up with anyone you don’t live with indoors or your garden.
  • You and one other person from another household can meet outside in a public place – but must stay 2 metres apart. Pre-school children are not counted.
  • If you have a serious medical condition which could put you at more risk from Coronavirus, please be especially careful.
