Community Benefits

The Community Benefits from the Twemlows solar farm are a key part of the case for investment in the STCE share offers. 

In Spring 2024 we have a further £25,000 to distribute.

£9,000 of this is managed by Community Resource and is for a wide range of projects within 15 miles of Prees, with a limit of £1,000 per claim. see

£16,000 is available for community carbon saving projects throughout Shropshire and Telford with a limit of £6,000 per claim. The deadline for applications is 30th April 2024. Groups who have had a grant previously are welcome to apply, it is a relatively simple application process.

see CBF Twemlows 2grant application form and guidance notes 2024 final  or contact our Treasurer, Dave Green, for a word version of the application form and guidance.

This is the third year we’ve been involved with the Twemlows Community Funds.  Local projects funded to date include allotments, community orchard and the Blackberry fair.  Carbon saving funded projects include village hall PV panels, energy efficiency work, rain water harvesting, new lighting and energy advice.
