Energy Efficiency Refurbishment Project

Link to 584

Hampsthwaite Memorial Hall is the main community centre for the village and commemorates the lives and sacrifice of those villagers who fell in the two World Wars.

As the current building approached its 50th Anniversary, the Hall Management Committee aimed to broaden the range of activities it can support and bring it up to modern energy saving standards. This would help sustain its future for another 50 years by increasing usage, controlling running costs, and result in several improvements to the fabric of the building.


This project is now substantially complete and the hall has achieved a Grade 'B' energy performance. This is an outstanding result for a building of this size, age, and type - see the  Energy Performance Certificate in the hall documentation section.
