The Offenham Village Hall Green Project now consists of four phases increased from the original three to make Offenham Village Hall environmentally friendly for the future.
Phase One
Install Solar Panels, an Electric Car Charging point (ECCP) and install energy saving Led lights in the Main Hall and New Terrace area.  COMPLETED
Phase Two
Install improved double glazing and install an Air Purifier and Sanitising System
Phase Three
Re render the front and terrace walls with a fix insulation.
Phase Four
Replace The Gas Heating And Hot Water System To A NEW ENERGY SAVING SYSTEM
Project Information
Phase One
Grants for Solar Panels, ECCP and Lighting was successfully applied for, with the help of Offenham Parish Council, and has been completed.
Installing Solar Panels has given us the opportunity to save on electricity saving hundreds of pounds yearly not having to buy energy through the grid.
We hope to be able to sell energy back to the national grid.
Phase Two
The Double Glazing Phase of the Green Project has replaced all the hall windows which had become unusable due to age and having an increasing about of extra use due to having Covid19 ventilation guidelines. The new windows have been designed with bigger top windows to improve ventilation and will help keep the hall warm and help towards reducing energy bills.
A Grant From Awards For All Of £8,000 helped fund this project.
The Air Purifier / Sanitising system is low energy usage and will work 24 -7 help keeping the main hall air and surfaces free from infections.
Phase Three
The Outside of the hall needs re rendering. At present we are looking into having a Mechanically fixed rigid insulation to the existing substrate with 2 coats of through-tone render. Insulating the outside walls will help towards our energy bills and help towards our Green Project. It will also give the hall a more modern look and help reflect the years of refurbishment and improvement the hall has continually gone through the last 10 years
Completed 2023
Phase Four
Is being planned for 2024
We are looking at infra red heating as one option and ground or air source heating is another to replace the gas heating system eventually replacing the gas boiler.
