Glennmont Sleaford Renewable Plant co-sponsors Community Champions Awards
Glennmont Partners, the owners of the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant, is once again a sponsor of the North Kesteven District Council’s Community Champions Awards. The Awards celebrate people in the local area who go above and beyond to support the environment, arts, sport or community.
