The committee of Weston-on-the-Green Memorial Village Hall in Oxfordshire is delighted to have received a grant of over £800 from E.ON’s Energising Communities Fund to help with the cost of fitting new energy efficient lighting.

The grant was used to replace old strip lighting with new energy efficient LED lighting, following recommendations from an energy audit conducted at the village hall. The committee hopes the new energy efficient LED lighting will not only improve its environmental awareness but will also reduce energy bills over time.

Andrew Wilson, Chairman at Weston-on-the Green Memorial Village Hall, said: “We’re so happy to have received the grant from E.ON to help us install new LED lighting. The LED lighting has now been fitted in the village hall and the difference is tremendous. No more humming from old lights or erratic lighting that doesn’t always come on. The LED lighting is so bright, quiet and super-efficient.

“Living in a small village, such as Weston-on-the-Green, means that there is a real sense of community and our village hall is right at the heart of that. The village hall provides a social, cultural and educational space for all members of the local community, from those that are only a few months old to those over the age of 90.

“Last year over 6,000 people passed through the doors of the village hall for a range of activities such as a garden club, a craft group, film nights and barn dances. We’re aiming to share information regarding how the LED lighting has reduced our energy consumption, costs and carbon footprint to all users of the village hall through an information board.”

Suzanne Roe, Community Relations Manager at E.ON, said: “It’s great to see community groups like Weston-on-the-Green Memorial Village Hall benefit from improvements in energy efficiency thanks to our Energising Communities Fund.

“Installing LED lighting is a straightforward way of increasing energy efficiency and we’re very happy to be supporting Weston-on-the-Green Memorial Village Hall committee in continuing its energy efficiency efforts.

“Weston-on-the-Green Memorial Village Hall is exactly the type of project that our Energising Communities Fund was set up to support. It’s brilliant that the village hall wants to pass on their knowledge of energy efficiency measures to local residents so that they can hopefully incorporate this information into their own homes.”
