Meeting Electrician

Richard Boxall (Building and Conservation Project Manager), Richard Boyles (Electrical Contractor and Steve Baber (Project Lead) met at the Parish Hall. The agenda included the installation of a cabling infrastructure, secondary heating sources and locations, and re-routing of electrical supply. The consumer unit currently visible in the main hall will be relocated to the store-room. Electrical heat fans can be installed under the stage and will provide additional heat when necessary. Richard will provide an example of a heat fan so that the Parish Hall Trustees / Committee can see the size of the unit and possible location.

Parish Hall Trustees Meeting

The Parish Hall Trustees / Management Committee met this evening. On the agenda was the long term conservation and improvement plan and the heating solution for the Hall. The energy source for the heating is either oil or air source.  Air source is preferred but the capacity and effectiveness of this system is being considered in relation to the heat loss associated with the cob wall building.  There was an update on the publicity associated with the Heritage Project and the ongoing fund raising strategies and successes.
