Biffa Award scheme

 

Users of Cowbit Village Hall will feel the benefit after the full cost of installing a new heating system was met by the cash from the Biffa Award scheme.
Since 1997, Biffa Award has awarded grants totalling more than £156 million to thousands of worthwhile community and environmental projects across the UK. The programme administers money donated by Biffa Group Ltd through the Landfill Communities Fund. The hall qualified due to being just within the qualifying distance from Biffa Group Ltd’s landfill site in the former quarry at Eye.
The application was processed by Village Hall Committee chairman Darren Harper and treasurer Chris Elliot.
The process involved carrying out an audit of the existing system’s efficiency, preparing an online application and then two competing quotes.
The work was carried out by local company, Complete Heat, of Whaplode Drove.
Mr Harper said: “The new heating is the latest in a series of improvements we have made to the hall in the past year, and we are extremely grateful to 
Biffa Award for fully funding the new heating.
“There are also other upgrades in the pipeline including new lighting.
“Cowbit Village Hall has been a popular and well-used facility within our community since 1988, and the whole committee is keen that it remains fit for purpose for the next quarter-century and beyond”.
The system that has been replaced was the original one from 1988 and obtaining parts and servicing support was becoming difficult.
It was also outdated in terms of heat output and energy usage.
The new system, besides being better at providing heat, is also more controllable and energy-efficient, meaning hall running costs will be reduced.

New chairs

Cowbit Village Hall took delivery of 100 new chairs this week.  Each chair has a cushioned seat and back and is easy to wipe clean. The new chairs will replace old hard plastic ones which, besides being less comfortable to sit in for long periods, have reached the end of their useful lives.

Half the funding for the new chairs was provided by Cowbit's three South Holland District Council ward councillors from the discretionary ward funding budget fund with the remainder coming from profits from the long-running Cowbit Village Hall Draw. This, besides raising funds for hall projects such as new chairs, gives participanys the chance to win two £30 monthly prizes plus a grand £200 christmas draw prize,..

 
Darren Harper, chairman of the Village Hall Committee, said “We are extremely grateful to Cllrs Casson, Woolf and Grocock for their support and, of course, to  the village draw members who have helped us replaced the old dirty chairs to nice new ones. These will make a huge difference to everyone using the hall, and make the hall a much more attractive venue for functions of all kinds including parties and weddings."
