Castlemorton Parish Hall

Thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Awards for All, Castlemorton Parish Hall has been improved to enable its use by all members of the community. A dedicated disabled toilet has been created and baby-changing facilities have been installed. A further improvement, funded by the Parish Council from the precept, is the replacement of the boiler with a modern, more fuel efficient model. A grant from the Elmley Small Arts Grants Fund together with a generous donation from the Castlemorton Commons Committee has provided the hall with an improved lighting system featuring dimmable uplighters and spotlights, enabling more appropriate and atmospheric lighting for different events.

Low energy light bulbs were provided by the Marches Energy Agency in 2007 as a first step to making the hall more energy efficient. Currently, the Parish Council is reviewing what other improvements can be made to the fabric of the building to improve insulation and reduce fuel use, alongside other sustainable ‘green measures’.

The Parish Council holds occasional meetings of its Environmental Forum to disseminate information and discussion about green technologies and all interested people are welcome to attend.

To enquire about booking the hall, please contact Joan Bedford on 833441.
