A number of renovations planned for a community centre may help it to secure cheap energy bills and reduce its carbon footprint.
Pendle Today reports how Barley Village Hall has been selected by the local parish council to receive funding from Lancashire Environmental Fund for energy saving upgrades.
The building will be fitted with loft insulation made from processed natural sheep's wool, while re-slating and felting will also help to prevent heat loss.
Double glazing has been planned for the windows, while existing solar panels are to be re-instated with an upgraded control system.
The panels were first fitted six years ago and have helped the hall to cut down its energy bills, with even bigger savings expected following the latest round of improvements.
It is hoped the sustainable energy renovations will attract new users who are interested in environmental issues and recognise the effort made by the council to cut carbon emissions.
