The 1950’s brick-built hall with crittal metal windows, a high ceiling and a very large pitched loft space was difficult to heat and yet had high energy bills. Many hall users are elderly or young, so maintaining a comfortable temperature is important. The hall is a popular venue for exercise, yoga and meditation classes and is used by local organisations for meetings and events.
Charges are kept as low as possible and income and expenditure are evenly balanced each year. Funding from TOE2 and Grundon allowed the committee to install secondary glazing and cavity wall insulation. The committee believes that this will result in reduced fuel use and lower bills, and that the hall will become an even better community resource.
