Go Green @ Foxhole Social Club

Lead Organisation: Foxhole Social Club

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded: £17,610

Location: Foxhole

The Community Capacity Fund grant will be used to commission a feasibility study which will include: architects’ fees for the preparation of drawings, plans and costings required for planning and building regulations applications; community engagement events to identify the needs of the community, local groups and organisations and local small/micro businesses; a review of the business model to include the new youth section of the building, the older part of the building used for community activities, the social club, bar and catering; long term re-investment of surplus and energy cost modelling.

There are parts of the building that will require renovation or refurbishment. The feasibility study will include full costings for these works.

The energy audit will be an important piece of work for the social club committee who have seen their energy costs escalate significantly. The modelling exercise will review new technologies versus cost and value for money. Technologies to be included are likely to be; installing thermal insulation across all roof spaces; improving double-glazed doors and windows; installation of power generation and energy storage. During the interim period pre-installation of energy generating/saving technologies the contractor will educate the social club committee and users on how to reduce energy usage.
