The latest successful grant recipient of the Horsham District Community Climate Fund is local community centre Henfield Haven.

The grant funds received from our Climate Fund covered the installation of photovoltaic (PV) panels which will generate 23,000 kWh of 100% green electricity, so enabling the Henfield Haven facility to be carbon neutral in terms of electricity.  The fund also allowed for the installation of an EV Charge Point.

Chairman of Henfield Haven Trustees, Digby Stephenson commented:

As a day centre serving the local community, and at a time with so much uncertainty regarding global issues, the benefits derived from this project will reduce the cost of the services we provide, enhancing its long term viability, and will act as an environmental beacon for other organisations and homeowners in the local community to invest in sustainable energy.

Commenting on the funds allocation, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Rural Affairs Cllr James Wright said:

It’s great to be supporting proactive community groups like Henfield Haven. The funds are being used in a way which will directly benefit the environment, combat local climate change and will reduce their energy costs  which can be passed on to their clients.

The next round of funding applications open on Monday 3 October 2022.
