Necton Community Centre was one of a number of local charities that benefited from a windfall dontation from the three companies involved with the construction and commissioning of the new Dudgeon Wind Farm Sub-station on the edge of the village.
Statoil, Siemens and Northern Midland Construction plc contributed to a collective initiative promoting Health & Safety at the sub-station site. With £10,000 secured by workers, nominations were made for its distribution across various local charities. The community centre was one of these lucky charities and they received a cheque for £1,500 which will be used to upgrade the car parking areas of the centre.
