Villagers Fund a Wood Fuel Co-operative

People from two Herefordshire villages have dug into their own pockets to fund a wood fuel co-operative. 

Herefordshire Villagers from Fownhope and Woolhope have donated £30,000 to the community wood co-operative after grant opportunities fell through.

"The scheme uses locally-sourced fuel from county woodlands to power boilers for community centres and businesses from a sustainable source."

"The project is supported by Sharenergy, a not-for-profit organisation."

"The money from residents will enable the project to launch its full public share issue in October."

"The co-operative has been set up by Fownhope Carbon Reduction Action Group."
