Solar panels for Beeding and Bramber Village Hall

Beeding and Bramber Village Hall has recently had new solar panels and low energy LED's fitted to help reduce their energy use and carbon emissions thanks to a Community Climate Fund grant from Horsham District Council.

This fund, which is allocated three times a year, enables Parish and Neighbourhood Councils, as well as voluntary and community groups to develop projects to reduce their carbon levels locally and to improve our environment.  Fund applications can be related to themes based on energy, water, waste minimisation, sustainable transport and biodiversity.

Commenting on the funds allocation, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Rural Affairs Cllr James Wright, said:

  • “This project really sums up the Council’s ethos as it’s all about reducing carbon emissions, helping the community and saving money, as installing this type of technology reduces energy costs.”
