Ingram Village Hall has been successful in accessing funding from the Northumberland National Parks Sustainable Development Fund for structural improvements to the hall.

In conjunction with the funding from COMMA, the funding from the Sustainable Development Fund will pay for the installation of

  • a new floor complete with under floor insulation
  • stripping out of wood cladding on the walls, replacement with fully insulated plasterboard and redecoration
  • a new sustainable energy "Air to Air" system  

The work will take place between Jan - March, consequently the hall will be closed for events during this time. These measures will contribute to making our hall a much warmer and more inviting venue for all community activities.

The Village Hall committee are committed to ensuring that all improvements to the hall should be as energy efficient and environmentally sustainable as possible. We live in a magnificent open space that we wish to conserve and promote and therefore all improvements to the hall should be in line with conservation principles.

We aim to develop conscience raising of the importance of protecting both the environment and natural resources within and beyond our local community. The village hall should become something for the community to be proud of, and an example to us all of energy efficiency and conservation.

We shall be calling on the community for help in the "destruction" work to allow the contractors to do the skilled construction work that will make such a difference.
