Energy Efficiencies at Lamplugh Village Hall

The aim of Lamplugh Village Hall was to make the building more energy efficient.

The project had secured funding from other sources including Cumbria Waste Management Environment Trust and Waste Recycling Environmental Limited (WREN) to deliver the work.

The group, with support from the community development team, maximised their applications to other funders and had carried out an energy audit to ensure an efficient and value for money scheme.

With the improvements to heating and ventilation the Village Hall will now be able to open for longer and host more events, creating a suitable income for the hall to expand in the future.
