Good news for the Community – Vattenfall who are construction firm behind the wind farm we see from our windows has made an award to the Trust. They support projects that are environmentally sustainable, and funds will go towards meeting the substantial costs of thermal insulation and double-glazed windows for the community hall. Although we still have some more fund raising to do to meet all our renovation requirements, this is a game changer.
Coupled with the ground source heat pump, they helped to purchase earlier, these improvements will maximise running efficiency, and reduce energy demand, as well has upgrading our space for social events and recreational activities, benefiting residents and visitors.
Culture Collective’s partnership with the Fittie Community Development Trust was instrumental in our success in obtaining this award since, among other aims, this project seeks to engage creatively, with those in Fittie who are interested in reducing our carbon footprint.
