Ingram Village Hall Refurbishment 

Village hall interior 2

Our village hall has long been in need of updating and refurbishment. We are at last in a position to improve the fabric of the building now that funding has been secured from a number of sources.  These improvements are :-

  • to replace the hall floor with a new sub-structure, full insulation & a new wooden surface  
  • to strip off the wall panelling, fully insulate the outside walls & replace the interior surface with part panelling (lower section) & painted plasterboard above 
  • to install an Air2Air heat source system & circulation fans with appropriate control timers.   
  • to renew the exterior roof & strengthen the underlying structure so solar panels or tiles can be installed which will then produce our own electricity supply & generate income from the excess towards future Hall improvements  

The sources of funding are:

  

COMMA 

£7,500 

 

Northumberland National Parks Sustainable Development Fund


£20,000 

 

Donation from Ingram Show 

 

£4,000

 


Councillor Murray's Capital Programme

£1,000

 


 

All the above should be completed between January – March 2010 during which time the hall will be closed. The electrical wiring will also be overhauled.

 

But things get even better!

 

The Ingram Village Hall and Community bid was chosen as the winner for the North East in the British Gas Green Streets project following a presentation by the village hall committee at Gosforth Park Hotel as part of the selection process on 27th October 09!
