Eaglesham Fair Committee appointed to run the local Community Benefit Fund

The local Eaglesham Fair Committee have been appointed by 2020 Renewables Ltd to manage the Community Benefit Fund which is being set up as part of the new windfarm development at Ardoch and Over Enoch farms. The fund will provide opportunities for local people to apply for funding for projects that will benefit the local communities in the parish of Eaglesham and Waterfoot.

Chairman of the Fair Committee Geoff Greenlaw said, “ We are delighted to have been granted the opportunity to continue the ethos of the Eaglesham Fair where any surplus funds from the bi-annual Fair are donated to charitable causes. We will now be able to expand this programme and support more worthy causes. It will take a while to get everything in place but we hope to be up and running in the second half of 2015”.
