Water-powered gifts

FIVE New Mills-based community groups are to benefit from funding from the community-owned Torrs Hydro electricity generator.

New Mills Heritage Centre, New Mills Volunteer Centre, New Mills Community Orchard, Spring Bank Arts and New Mills School Art Department will each receive a £100 donation.

Torrs Hydro Director Sean Whewell said: “Although we have been producing renewable energy for over three years, it’s great to be giving something more back to the community that has been so supportive.

“It’s a proud moment for everyone who has been involved over the past four years: these donations are part of the very reason we started the project.”
