We’re pleased to be able to support Stoulton Village Hall in completing its energy efficiency improvements. Upgrading the fire door is an easy way to prevent heat loss and reap the full benefits of the other energy efficiency measures installed in the hall. It’s also great to see that the village parish is aiming to extend the benefits of the installation by teaching local people about how they can improve their own energy efficiency at home through draught-proofing.

Stoulton village parish in Worcester is putting a £500 grant from E.ON’s Energising Communities Fund to good use by installing a new energy-efficient fire door in its local village hall.

Stoulton Village Hall plays host to a range of activities, meetings and events for several community groups but the building had previously suffered with an old fire door which let in draughts and led to unnecessary heat loss. It’s hoped that the new fire door will put an end to this and in turn help cut the running costs of the village hall.

Fiona Morris, one of the Trustees at Stoulton Village Hall said: “We’re delighted to have received the grant from E.ON to help us complete our energy efficiency improvements. We’ve identified many energy saving opportunities for the hall and we’ve installed new windows and doors and a new heating system. But the old fire door was stopping us from reaching the full potential of these installations and so we now hope to see an improvement in our energy efficiency, as well as a reduction in our heating costs.

“It’s essential for us to have a warm building as we provide a venue for activities supporting vulnerable people, including social events for those over the age of 65 and a monthly yoga class for people with MS. We also plan to use the fire door as an opportunity to educate local residents about the importance of energy efficiency and the simple draught-proofing measures that they can take to improve the warmth and comfort of their own homes.”

Suzanne Roe, E.ON’s Community Relations and Corporate Responsibility Manager, said: “We’re pleased to be able to support Stoulton Village Hall in completing its energy efficiency improvements.
