April 2009 - Windows and Door Project

posted 30 Aug 2010, 14:16 by Rosemary Godfrey
Our project was to replace the external doors and windows throughout the building. The old windows and doors were wooden and had been in the building for nearly 25 years. They were all beginning to rot and some were almost completely rotten, they were beyond repair and needed replacing. Other advantages of installing new UPVC windows included increased security and help to lower heat loss from the building. We wanted to continue to provide a facility that makes a difference to the residents of our village and surrounding villages and we believe they deserve a facility to be proud of.

We replaced 41 windows and 14 external doors with UPVC in brown wood grain effect to be in keeping with the ones they are replaced. They were double glazed to improve the security and helping to prevent heat loss from the building.

The total cost of the project was £26,800. This project would not have been possible without the generous donations and grants from:
  • Mundford Parish Council - £4,000
  • Norfolk County Council Capital Grant Aid Scheme - £8,930
  • WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental) - £12,000
Mundford Recreation Ground and Village Hall Trust contributed the remainder of the funds required - £1,870.
