After 4 years of gradual renovations at The Building we are delighted to finally announce that we are connected to the electricity grid! We have been getting by with a second-hand diesel generator for the last 2 and a half years - and have run Lunch Clubs, Community Events, Holiday activities, Youth Clubs, and of course the successful Music Project and Bike Project are based here - but it's all been rather difficult running off a generator with the 30 year old wiring system in place.
Electricity North West flipped the switch on 15th June and we now have a stable and reliable electricity connection, and seven modern electric heaters to supplement the cosy wood burning stoves over the winter. Just in time for the Festival!
The Music Studio can now run without the distant rattle of the generator, and we don't have to make emergency trips out to get diesel fuel, or to flip switches on the generator when it breaks down! Hallelujah...!
We are incredibly grateful to a particular individual who donated a significant sum of money for this particular project - without which we would not even have been able to consider the project.
Rob and the RD team took a hand in the digging and prep work for the cable trench.
All in all, we are very pleased to be in the modern electrical era at the Building - thanks to all involved!
