Hambledon Community Fund has now given over £30,000 in grants to local organisations and occasionally villagers in need and is a vital part of the vibrant and thriving village community.
Among the organisations to receive grants from the endowment fund are the shop, football club, cricket club and almshouses. The fund has also purchased a defibrillator, equipment for the nursery and storage heaters for the village hall.
Dr Llewelyn, who chaired the fund until this year when she became High Sheriff, unveiled a plaque at Hambledon Village Hall. It was to celebrate the fund’s success to date.
