  • Turbine Fund Grant

    The Community Benefit Fund (known as the Turbine Fund as it is income from the wind turbine) allocated to Boddington Parish Council is calculated by ‘The Ingenious Group’ annually. The base amount is £2500 and they usually increase this based on inflation. The payment is received in April and the funds must only be used for projects that will enhance the community and cannot be used for day to day expenses such as grass cutting and street lighting.

    In order to ensure that this fund is fairly allocated to the community, Boddington Parish Council has agreed a grants awarding policy which sets out the criteria and timescales involved for organisations to apply for some of this fund.

    The timescales set out in the policy are based on a financial year where the fund is available at the beginning of the year. As this policy has only just been introduced the funds for the financial year 2016-2017 are still available and the parish council welcome applications from any interested groups. Any applications received will be considered at the next parish council meeting, as stated in the policy, until the fund is exhausted.

A History of Boddington

10 to 12 Shillings a week with beer!

The spelling of Boddington has changed over the centuries from Botendon in Domesday Book (1086) through Bottelendon (12th century Survey of Northamptonshire), and Budinton in the Calendar of Close Rolls (1244) to Botyngdon (1358), Botyndoun (1396) and Botyngdon (1428). When it became established as Boddington we do not know, but on some 19th century maps it was spelled with only one d. The origin of the name could be Botas Hill (dun) or, as Baker surmises, it could be compounded of Boten, a contraction of the Saxon plural of botl, a habitation, and dune or done, a down, which corresponds with the situation of the upper village.
