Work Starts At Comrades Hall – Monday 10th January

Work begins on Monday, 10th January at the Comrades Hall to replace the central heating system. An air source heat pump system is being installed to replace the current old oil-fired system. In addition, they are installing 36 solar panels (PVs) across 3 roof surfaces.

The electricity generated will power the daytime use in the Hall, with the surplus directed to heating the water, and any remaining surplus after that sent to the National Grid. These installations will greatly reduce the carbon footprint of our village hall. This work is being funded largely thanks to grant funding awarded by The National Lottery Community Fund and Low Carbon Dorset.

Obviously there will be disruption to normal hall usage while this work is taking place, but please be assured that  Post Office services and Comrades Arms sessions will still take place as usual, and that any existing hall bookings will be able to go ahead.

Please direct any enquiries to Chairman, David Leader: 01308 868275.
Thank you.

Thank You For Your Hard Work

“A massive thank you to Chris Edgerley, John Hayes, Ruth Stevens, Jamie Dawson, Morgan Napier, and George Calverly for all their fantastic work in painting Comrades Hall with 3 coats of Sandtex paint.
The paint was donated by Bridport Building Supplies for which we are incredibly grateful.
This work took a week of hard graft and would have cost thousands of pounds if we had to pay for it. Many people have commented on how good the finish looks and it seems like a different building. I cannot thank all the volunteers who have given so much in scorching heat to improve Comrades Hall, one of the most important community buildings in our village. Thank you.
David Leader
