Donation from Tarmac
Posted to website October 10th 2016

Tarmac have donated £202,100 to Quorn Parish Council via the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), to support the development of Quorn’s Heritage Centre. The donation will help to install a new roof, gutters and downpipes and so kick start bringing the historic part of the Old School back into community use. Getting the work under way will support the Parish Council's application for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to carry out the adaptations to the building to house the Heritage Suite, the Community Library and Lounge, a drop-in cafe and social area.

Chair of the Parish Council’s Project Team said: “We are delighted to be able to thank Tarmac for their donation. It will help bring back into use the well-loved Old School and is an excellent start to our campaign to enable the Old School to complement our very successful Stafford Orchard Park. We are working in partnership with the Quorn Old School Trust which has worked over many years to develop the ideas for this important building at the heart of our village.

Tarmac’s estates manager, Tim Deal, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting this project which will provide so many benefits to the local community. Supporting and engaging with the communities in which we operate is something we strive to do across our business, and donating to this project is a fantastic way to do this.

The LCF is an innovative tax credit scheme, enabling operators of landfill sites to contribute a portion of their landfill tax liability to support community projects local to landfill sites. Tarmac have supported a number of projects via the LCF, across the whole of the UK and Leicestershire specifically.

If you have any queries about the above items, please contact Christina, our Parish Clerk.
