Sober Community Fund

The Sober Hill Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund is an annual £24,600 index linked fund provided to Newbald Parish by the developers of Sober Hill Wind Farm for 25 years. Payments will continue until 2038.

The fund is exclusive to this parish and it seeks to benefit good causes in the village. It is managed by Newbald Parish Council.

The fund has recently granted money to St. Nicholas’ Church, Newbald Young People’s Project, Newbald Playing Field Association, Newbald Primary School, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the Village Hall Management Committee.

The fund is currently open. The deadline for receipt of applications is Tuesday 30th November 2021.

Assuming no further information is required from applicants, a decision will be reached at a meeting of Newbald Parish Council on 13th December 2021. The Parish Council reserves the right to defer any decisions until January, should they deem it to be necessary.
