Rosehall Funding steps up to serve community

02 July 2018

Residents in the Rosehall area will be able to step safely up to their village hall thanks to an award from the latest round of the E.ON Rosehall Community Fund.   The Rosehall Village Hall Committee has been awarded £7,011 to replace the stairs leading up to the hall.  The work is part of a programme of improvements to this vital community facility. 

Peter Orrell, Secretary for the hall committee said “The stairs were become a hazard and required urgent repair.  To ensure public safety we had to close the top flight, which meant people had to use the long disabled access ramp to access to the building, so this award is most welcome and will certainly improve things”.

The award was one of four awards made recently by the local Panel which makes decisions on how the E.ON Rosehall Community Fund is spent.  In total almost £35,000 was awarded during the most recent funding round.

The Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust was awarded £15,920 to employ an office manager; The Lairg and District Community Initiative was awarded £6,300 to commission a bespoke community housing strategy; and the Lairg Community Association was awarded £5,200 towards employing a part time administrator.

Nick Taylor, who works in E.ON’s renewable business, said: “The village hall is a real hub for the community, so ease of access is vital. We’re delighted that through our Rosehall Wind Farm we’re able to support this necessary improvement work, as well as providing funds to the other three projects to have benefitted at this time.

“This is about local people deciding how they feel the fund should be used best to benefit the whole community, and we’re grateful to Foundation Scotland for managing the fund on behalf of E.ON and Rosehall wind farm, and to the volunteers who determine which projects to support.”  

Foundation Scotland administers the E.ON Rosehall Community Fund on behalf of E.ON. More information on the Fund and other awards made can be found at www.foundationscotland.org.uk/rosehall or visit the Fund Facebook page

The next deadline for applications is 31 Oct 2018 with decisions being made in January 2019.
