raised of £8,500 target by 4 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,000 to create a sustainable future for the new Wedmore sports pavilion.

    Funded on Sunday, 16th June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    It has always been our wish to create a sports pavilion with a fully sustainable future. The key element is the inclusion of a 30KW photovoltaic array on the south roof slope of the building. The PV panels not only generate sufficient energy to power the building, but the projected surplus will via feed-in tariffs generate additional income to cover the maintenance of the PV array and the building itself.

    The total cost of the array is a little over £26,000 for 108 PV panels. The cost per panel works out at roughly £250. We would like to invite any community minded individuals or businesses to take part in our ‘Buy a PV Panel’ scheme.

    In return for your generous donation your name will be permanently engraved on a commemorative plaque displayed within the new pavilion and you will enjoy the warm feeling inside knowing that you have helped create a truly sustainable facility for the village.

    You will see that all of the panels have been installed on the roof which we needed to do to qualify for the feed in tariff scheme but we have had to divert funds from the main building project, ideally WE STILL NEED TO SELL ANOTHER 34 PV PANELS.

    If your business would like to ‘Buy a PV Panel’ then please contact our treasurer Richard Banwell via e-mail at or on 01278 641109 who will make alternative payment arrangements. Thank You .

    If you would like to participate, PLEASE DONATE IN MULTIPLES OF £250 ONLY and let us know in the message what you would like on the commemorative plaque.

    Each panel on the commemorative plaque is approx. 45mm x 80mm portrait, and will fit a maximum of 40 characters. There is one panel per PV. Please let us know what you would like engraved in each panel.
