The Angus Brewer Community Fund

The Angus Brewer Community Fund was established in 2014 as part of the S106 agreement for the solar panels. Between 2014 and 2039, the solar farm will invest £437,000 into the ABCF. The fund is overseen by Andy Brewer from Emsrayne Renewable Energy Ltd with a committee representing the two communities of Caddington and Slip End. Individuals and community groups from the two parishes are invited to apply for funding for projects regarding efficient or renewable energy, environmental sustainability or other projects beneficial to the community.

In 2018 it was announced that a second fund will be established to serve the communities of New Mill End and East Hyde, as part of the development of an energy from waste facility in the area. The Lea Bank Energy Park will donate £50,000 per year for 25 years to community projects in villages surrounding the new facility.

The fund is named after Angus Brewer, a consultant pathologist at the Royal Free Hospital who also served as Chairman of Bedfordshire County Council. He was a District Councillor for Caddington for many years and was a great supporter of the community. Angus lived at Millfield Farm, the site of the first solar farm. His son, Andrew Brewer, is the Director of Emsrayne Renewable Energy Ltd and the chair of the Community Fund.
