GILES WELCOMES GRANT FROM UK POWER NETWORKS FOR WEELEY VILLAGE HALL.

Giles Watling, MP for Clacton, has welcomed a £2,000 grant from UK Power Networks to Weeley Village Hall, to help make the facility more sustainable by installing energy efficient lighting.

UK Power Networks have invested more than £600 million in the electricity network, whilst maintaining and managing all the power lines in the South East of England and London. UK Power Networks have also committed £254,452 to the Power Partners community investment fund, to try and boost energy efficiency across their distribution area. It is from this funding that the grant has been awarded to Weeley Village Hall, which will reduce its energy consumption over the long-term.

In total, 16 grant recipients have been selected so far and UK Power Networks have now opened the second round of applications for funding. The deadline for applications is midnight on 18th August 2019 and you can apply by visiting: https://www.cse.org.uk/projects/view/1356

Giles commented:

“It is great to hear about the grant from UK Power Networks to help the Weeley Village Hall become more energy efficient – this will help reduce energy bills for a key community asset in our area. I would also encourage any other organisation in our area, that qualifies for funding, to apply before 18th August.”
