Treverbyn Community Hall
Taking it from a run-down church hall to a hive of activity, a well-managed community project used solar energy to get a myriad of activities up and running at the newly refurbished Treverbyn Community Hall.
Volunteers of all ages from within the community worked tirelessly to make this project a success.
With no local pubs or cafes in the immediate vicinity, the building was destined to become a crucial meeting place for all members of the community, bringing vital services and activities closer to those people who are unable to travel.
The vision was to accommodate a micro library, meeting rooms, reception area, toilets and a large hall for a wide variety of classes and clubs.
The Parish Council, local police force and Cornwall College are just a few of the organisations that have already supported and utilised the space.
Installation of solar PV and solar thermal as part of the renovation not only contributed to the energy required to run the building, reducing its overall running costs in the process, but also provides a valuable income stream, ensuring hall hire rates remain at an affordable level for everyone.
