We are currently awaiting formal approval of the planning application for this project. We expect this to be confirmed during the campaign. No funds will be transferred to the project until Spacehive has seen confirmation that the planning application was approved. This project is to replace the current old and unreliable oil heating system. The project will finalise the overall infrastructure deliverables to provide a warm and environmentally friendly community building using an environmentally friendly Air Source Heat Pump system. It will provide improved heating and overall improvement to the comfort to all users of the hall. This project also includes the replacement of old, metal framed single glazed windows in the toilet area with Heritage Style double glazed units.

What we'll deliver:

  • A new Air Source Heat Pump system
  • Fully double glazed toilet windows

Why it's a great idea:

The Sapperton Village Hall Trustees will provide a community hall for the local residents and wider community. To enable people to meet in a warm and friendly environment. To provide a respite in times of crisis and a area to assemble when needed. This project will complement the other main projects already undertaken successfully to ensure the village hall is fully insulated and heat retentive. The hall is essential to the local primary school for PE and after school activities. Keeping the children warm and safe is one of the hall Trustees top priorities. This project is essential to this requirement.

Steps to get it done:

  • Introduction of Air Source Heat Pump heating
  • Fitment of heat retentive double glazed windows

This project will reduce running costs due to the removal of heating oil requirement. Heating expert has estimated a 20-30% reduction in fuel cost. With new heating system in place this estimate will be considerably higher. Past hall users have complained that the hall has been cold in the winter months. The village Trustees have agreed the old and unreliable heating system is long overdue for replacement. Multiple users within the community will benefit directly due to improved wellbeing and comfort. Improved heating will encourage increased usage and improve much needed village hall income. This project will be measurable by reduced heating costs. Increased usage of hall by the local and wider community will increased cash reserves. This project has the full backing of the current and previous Ward Councillors and the local MP, and many other local supporters.
