Itchen Abbas & Avington Village Hall goes green

We have a project to put solar panels on the south-east facing roof of the hall and to change our gas boilers to a ground-source heat pump. This will not only be a clear contribution from the hall towards reducing its carbon footprint, but it should also greatly reduce our £4,000 per year energy costs.

The first part of the proposal is to put at least 28 panels on the roof and to have battery storage for night time requirements. This will cost around £20,000, part of which will be grant aided. The next step will be the replacement our our aging gas boilers with a heat pump. As a community building, we qualify for substantial grants towards this £35,000 scheme.

To make sure all of this happens, the village hall has to show support from the community. We will be asking for donations from the residents of Avington and Itchen Abbas. Please be prepared to be generous as this is truly a project that will benefit everyone.

Thank you

Christopher Langford, Chair of the village hall committee
