SPF awarded: £131,002

Location:  Tregony

Tregony Village Hall’s Net Zero & Levelling Up project will provide a range of essential upgrades, including a new lift to allow use of the upstairs Ringrose Room, a 65” UHD Screen and surround sound with a view to encouraging cosy movie and gaming events; as well as encouraging those groups that have left in recent years to return. The antiquated oil-fired boiler will be decommissioned and replaced with a solar panel array and batteries to maximise storage, and an upgrade to 3-phase electricity. Infrared heaters throughout will enable rapid, zoned heating that should be a vast improvement on the current inefficient, fossil-fuelled system.

The main hall will also benefit from a state-of-the-art projector along with 8ft electric screen, speakers and associated audio-visual equipment, including a hearing loop. Large scale cinema nights and presentations making use of the already installed superfast broadband will be encouraged. Outside, the solar installation will incorporate two new electric vehicle chargers, along with four e-bike chargers.

The area around the hall will see improvements with a new Community Orchard established, featuring Cornish apple trees and pomegranate trees, the latter a feature of the village coat of arms. A specially commissioned feature sculpture – designed and built by a local metalworker and artist – will complete the picture, creating a strong visual and environmental link to the rich history of the Parish.
