This fund is to be used for the benefit of Eastington community. The Parish Council manage the fund as Trustees and is treated separately from Council monies.

The Solar Grant Fund: this is a fund given annually to the Parish Council to manage from the solar farm at Cambridge. The fund is to be used for goods or services which are for the promotion or improvement of the environmental, social, or benefit of the local community.
The Parish Council also operates a small grants budget and beneficiaries must live or work in Eastington and/or must provide services that will benefit a significant sector of the local community. This grants budget is used for things like the Poppy Appeal, or Citizens Advice Bureau donations.
