Essential improvements for Rowner properties
Four community buildings in the Rowner area of Gosport in Hampshire are to undergo a significant green renovation as a result of a new grant scheme.
A total of £94,000 has been donated by The Veolia Environmental Trust to improve the green credentials of each of the properties, with a focus on ensuring lower running costs and smaller emissions from each building in the years ahead, Portsmouth's The News reports.
The properties that are to benefit from this generous donation are:
- the King Church’s 100-year-old community hall on Somers Road
- the Frank Sorrell Centre on Prince Albert Road
- the Nimrod Community Centre on Falcon Meadows Way
- the John Pounds Centre on Queen Street
Each of the properties will now receive ongoing support in their efforts to improve their energy efficiency, with measures being implemented at each of the sites including new boiler and heating systems, the installation of additional thermal insulation and some general repairs.
Executive director of the Veolia Environmental Trust Paul Taylor told the news provider: "These projects will transform these buildings, making them warmer and better-equipped, benefiting the whole community.
"We are seeing an ongoing reduction in the amount of funds that we can award, so these organisations need to be congratulated on ?securing their grants in an extremely competitive environment."
