Cash award helps hall stay bright
ENERGY-saving LED lighting is to be installed in Saltford Hall.
An award of £2,000 towards the cost has been made from a Bath & North East Somerset Council fund.
The Ward Councillor Empowerment Fund was set up to enable councillors to respond to local needs to improve the lives of residents in their community.
Councillor Duncan Hounsell, who successfully applied for the money, said: “Saltford Community Association, which runs the hall, has been working over recent years to maximise the energy efficiency of the building.
“Solar panels, modern gas boilers and improved roof and window insulation have already been installed.
“Switching all the lights in the building to LED will not only save energy but will also cut running costs and improve the quality of light in the hall.”
Councillors across Bath and North East Somerset were each given the opportunity to apply for £2,000 to support projects driven by local residents in their community.
