Healthy n Happy (HnH) are a Community Development Trust and registered charity. We work with local residents to make Cambuslang & Rutherglen the healthiest and happiest places to live and work in Scotland. We are run by the community, for the community.
We deliver a wide range of activities and services, including: a community radio station (CamGlen), grassroots community development focused on deprived local communities, a Bike Town initiative to encourage and develop cycling in the local area, parent cafes and youth led activism around alcohol. We have just refurbished a new community hub opening to the public in October 15. These services help us interact with over 7,000 local residents each year; but that work is under threat.
Cuts to our core funding have forced our organisation to seek new methods of income generation. After months of deliberation our directors settled on the idea of a community wind turbine. We have already spoken to hundreds of local people who are in full support of our proposal but we want to make sure that the planning application has as much backing as possible.
The Flemington Wind Turbine will provide huge ongoing benefits for all of Cambuslang & Rutherglen. Primarily it will help Healthy n Happy maintain and further its services for the next 25 years. The income will also establish a community fund which local groups will be able to access. Healthy n Happy believe that communities should benefit from renewables and not just big corporations, please sign this petition showing your support of our planning application.
