The Village Hall & Playing Field Trust has a new WEBSITE
Thanks to Councillor Mary Phillips' expertise and hard work, Baltonsborough Parish Council (BPC) received a grant of about £30,000 from Somerset County Council's Climate Emergency Community Fund.
This funding has supported the 'Greener Hall & Playing Field for Baltonsborough' project.
The Fund’s aim is to support projects that most significantly contribute to achieving the goals of SCC's Climate Emergency Strategy and to those that best deliver a legacy beyond the life of the project.
BPC is using the grant to lower the village hall's energy consumption and to encourage a greater diversity of plants and wildlife on the playing field :
1. Roof Mounted Solar PV and battery
2. Installation of destratification fans in the main hall
3. Installation of LED lighting throughout the Hall
4. Electric Vehicle charging points
5. 'Re-wilding' areas of the playing field
Most of the project's structural work is now complete and the playing field re-wilding is progressing nicely!
Mary charges her car using the new PV array and EV chargers.
