Environment

A number of measures have been adopted at our hall to reduce our carbon footprint:

  • We provide a wider range of activities within the community reducing the need for people to travel by car, and public transport
  • Renewable electricity is used to heat, light, and power the hall
  • We have inspected the hall with a thermal camera to highlight cold spots etc. and found and found that there are no major cold spots and the roof of our hall is well insulated.
  • We regularly maintain our heaters to ensure maximum efficiency.
Consumption and waste
  • Our Craft Nights focus on reuse/upcycling of materials
  • We have been hosting Clothes Swaps for 2 years to combat ‘fast fashion’ and will be running our first Repair Café in September to encourage reuse not waste.
  • At our events we try to use locally sourced food where possible and economical.
Recycling
  • We’ve reduced the size of our kitchen waste bin and added a recycling bin in the kitchen to encourage more recycling,
  • we are a drop-off point for several community recycling schemes with Terracycle to recycle crisp packets, biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers, and oral care products.
  • We are installing a water butt for watering the plants at our hall.
