Church Hall roof leaks no more with £2,800 from Community Grant Fund
ABOUT THE FUNDING
From an Amateur Choral & Operatic Society to Girl Guiding Groups, Table Top Sales to Church Fundraisers, the Selsey Methodist Church Hall is used by many groups and people who regularly had to pray that rain didn’t stop play from a leaking flat roof.
With £2,800 from our Community Grant Fund members of the Church were able to replacement flat roof and guttering and redecorating the church hall.
“We now KNOW rainwater goes where it should! And without your grant the hall would not be bright, cheerful & inviting. Everyone who comes into the hall comments how nice it looks. Thank you very much.”

ABOUT FERRY FARM COMMUNITY SOLAR
The Ferry Farm community solar farm is located just north of the town of Selsey in West Sussex and straddles the parishes of Selsey and Sidlesham, which are the community it serves.
Created in 2016, our 5 megawatt community solar farm is made up of around 19,000 solar panels which, to date, have generated 5,400,000 kilowatt hours of electricity from the sun. That is enough to power the equivalent of 1,300 homes every year!
Surplus income generated by the solar farm, after operating and finance costs and reserves, is used to support Ferry Farm Community Solar’s community purpose and since 2016 we have provided over £85,000 of funding to support community projects.
We expect to generate at least £2million over the solar farm’s 30 year operating life to support local community initiatives.
