We have received news from Severn Trent about a new community fund.
Details taken directly from email as below
Exciting news…our brand new Community Fund has launched!
We’ve committed to giving more than £10 million over the next five years to fund worthy projects across the Severn Trent region, to make a real difference in the communities we serve.
The fund is focused on improving community wellbeing through three key elements:
- People – projects that facilitate healthier lifestyles and skills development
- Place – projects that create better places to live and use
- Environment – projects that facilitate a healthier natural environment, greater access to that environment or that support the preservation of water
And of course, being a water company, naturally we’d love to see applications for projects that have a connection to water too – this might mean creating sustainable drainage, installing grey water recycling or creating water efficient green spaces.
Applications are now open via our website http://www.stwater.co.uk/communityfund
Our independent Community Fund Customer Panel made up for Severn Trent customers will review applications on a quarterly basis and decide where the money goes. They will meet for the first time in March and we’ll start giving out our first grants in April 2020.
You can find full eligibility criteria and the link to apply at www.stwater.co.uk/communityfund
Bookings are now open for both Six Summits in May and County Night Hike in February!

County Night Hike
County Night Hike – 8th February 2020
Solihull County Night Hike is an overnight hike starting at Heart of England Conference Centre. There are two routes, one for Scouts and one for Explorers.
Six Summits – 8th – 10th May 2020
Six Summits is a 36 mile 3 days hike across the Shropshire Six Summits.
Open to Scouts & Explorers it is designed for experienced walkers who would like to enhance their skills and personal development across the two challenges to be completed over two years.
I would like to thank everyone involved in Scouting in Solihull for making a difference to the lives of our young people, from the youngest Beaver to the oldest Explorer. We’ve had an amazing year full of fun, adventures and friendship, and I am sure that 2020 will be even better.
I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
