History - .In 1665 John Hart, by his will proved in the P.C.C., devised (inter alia) an annuity of £3 for apprenticing a poor boy, issuing out of Easington Manor, Oxfordshire. The rent-charge (less land tax) is accumulated and applied in apprenticing as occasion requires.
For the charities of Dame Anne Pigott, founded in 1672, and of Thomas Pigott, founded by deed poll 1704, for the education and apprenticing respectively of poor children of Grendon and Quainton, see under the parish of Quainton.
The charity of Christobella, Viscountess Saye and Sele was founded by will, dated 8 December 1787, and is possessed of the recreational field at Grendon Underwood and community buildings at Quainton. It was then endowed with a sum of £14,041 14s. 7d. consols, transferred out of the Court of Chancery to the official trustees, producing £351 0s. 8d. yearly. The official trustees also hold a sum of £247 7s. 3d. consols on an investment account towards replacement of a sum of £500 by instalments of £12 10s. yearly. By a scheme of the Charity Commissioners of 17 August 1900 two-thirds of the net income is made applicable for the advancement in life of poor boys of Grendon and Quainton and one-third in the advancement of the education of children in the same parishes. The educational branch is regulated by a scheme of the Board of Education of 23 December 1908.
Greatmoor Energy from Waste Plant
The Greatmoor plant converts some 345,000 tonnes of non-recyclable municipal and industrial solid waste into 25 Megawatts [enough to power 40,000 homes across Buckinghamshire] of electricity per annum for industrial processing and for district heating systems – an ecologically sound, cost-effective means of energy recovery. The energy plant works by burning waste at high temperatures, whilst minimising pollution, and using the heat to make steam to turn the turbines.
In April 2013Buckinghamshire County Council signed a contract with FCC Environment to build and operate an Energy from Waste (EfW) plant at Greatmoor, near Calvert in the north of Buckinghamshire and the facility opened in June 2016.
COVID19 status - At the outset of the COVID-19 crisis, workers at Greatmoor Energy from Waste Plant along with others like it were given Key Worker status as the Government recognised the vital role the waste sector needed to play in keeping waste and recycling collections and waste processing going. As such, the plant has remained open, operating normally and continuing to power 40,000 homes across Buckinghamshire and ensuring that residential waste does not end up in landfill.
