Find out about the projects that have been funded in your area so far:
Normandy Community Shop and Café
Your Fund Surrey has granted £518,354 towards the new community building. The community wanted to build a community shop and café, this is because the nearest shop and café are a drive away. The design of the building will aim to take advantage of energy saving measures such as solar panels, insulation and heat recovery. Being community owned, all profits go back into ensuring the ongoing viability of the business, with any surplus profits being used for other community projects within the village. Visit Normandy Community Shop and Café for more information.
Pirbright Community Amateur Sports Pavilion
Your Fund Surrey has awarded £300,000 towards the sports pavilion. This will be a community-wide project that enables equal access to physical exercise, team sport and recreation for all ages, genders and abilities, that will develop new youth, mixed ability and veterans' programs, whilst bringing competitive sport back to Pirbright. Whilst initially based around football and cricket, the program has already developed softball and wider sports and recreational activity. The project promotes wider participation and new community activities locally. Visit Pirbright Community Amateur Sports Pavilion for more information.
Ripley Village Hall
Your Fund Surrey has awarded £518,354 towards the hall. The project is to build a new Ripley Village Hall, replacing the dilapidated temporary hall built in the 1970s. The new hall will incorporate the latest technological developments in terms of thermal insulation and air source heat pumps, which will substantially reduce operating costs and be beneficial to the environment. The total cost is £1.9 million. The trustees have secured £800,000 funding so far, and a further £600,000 is due from Guildford Borough Council.
