Community Events - Warmer Building Project

18th September 2019

Finedon Community Sports & Leisure Centre is today celebrating a £20,000 funding boost from SUEZ Communities Trust for their Warmer Building Project Fund.

This former church building is 110 years old, cold inside most of the year and comes complete with stained glass windows.  There is no gas supply to the building so it was heated via old electric quartz infra-red heating tubes which were installed in 1985. The units were beginning to fail throughout the building. 

Funding will allow installation of heat pump air conditioning which will be more effective in maintaining a comfortable temperature within the two large halls all year round.

Their secretary, Pam Wilton, who is leading the project said: "We are extremely grateful to SUEZ Communities Trust for their major contribution to enable our project to actually go ahead and happen.  We would also like to thank the Market Harborough Charitable Foundation, the Finedon Dolben Lodge Buffs and The Sudboroough Foundation for their contributions which have helped us achieve our goal to proceed with our project this year!  It will ensure that we have air conditioning to help deal with not only the cold, but the 'very hot' days we are now experiencing!  Our grateful thanks goes to all who have helped us. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH from our Management Committee of volunteers, our current and future users! We look forward to embracing future hirings with modernised halls upstairs and down.  Contact us to discuss your needs on: 01933 398377"

Marek Gordon, Chairman of SUEZ Communities Trust added "SUEZ Communities Trust provides funding awards through the Landfill Communities Fund. We were delighted to be able to offer funding to Finedon Community Sports & Leisure Centre."
