Crossroads Solar Farm, situated off Blackwater Grove in Alderholt, was built by Good Energy and began generating electricity in June 2015. Good Energy committed to contributing more than £7,000 per year to the Alderholt Community Fund (ACF) for the 30 year life of the solar farm. In January 2022, Crossroads Solar Farm was acquired by Bluefield Solar Income Fund, who will continue to make contributions to ACF.
ACF was launched in May 2016 and exists to provide grants to projects in the Parish which will benefit the inhabitants of Alderholt. It is administered by the Alderholt Community Charitable Trust, a registered charity (Charity Number 1167313).
Individuals, societies and groups in the area are encouraged to apply for funding and applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to the ‘Thinking of Applying?’ section for further information.
