Residents living within a 5km radius of the Ventient Sisters and North Steads windfarms are being encouraged to attend a funding advice evening next week.

The drop-in session will take place at Hadston House on Wednesday, August 1, from 5pm to 7pm.

Following the installation of two neighbouring windfarms near Widdrington, the Ventient Sisters North Steads Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund was established.

It is managed by the Community Foundation Tyne and Wear and Northumberland on behalf of Ventient Energy and a panel made up of members of local communities recommend the grant awards.

A total of £37,485 was distributed in the first round and the deadline for the second round of applications is Tuesday, August 14.
