If your primary residence is within the Parish of Ellingham you can apply to the Ellingham Community Trust annually for a free supply of solid fuel. Options for the 2019 scheme were a pallet of renewable heat logs, a 2m cube of seasoned hardwood, a voucher for a local coal merchant, £200 if you have no solid fuel burner, or £100 if you have a solid fuel burner but would rather claim the cash.
If you do not have an open fire or log burner it is still worth taking advantage of this offer. It is acceptable to sell the fuel (please ask a Trustee for contacts of people who would buy) or to pass on as a gift or you can receive a cash sum from the Trust.
An application form for the 2020 scheme will be released later in the year.
