The Haltwhistle Partnership is delighted to be supporting South Tyne Sustainability (STS) and the Haltwhistle Swimming and Leisure Centre (HSLC) in facilitating HSLC to secure funding from the Government's new Rural Communities Energy Fund (RCEF) for a feasibility study into extracting heat from the mineworkings that lie under Haltwhistle. A grant of £40,000 ihas been awarded for the first phase of the feasibility and the project is underway with an energy audit of HSLC and research into the mines underneath and adjacent to the centre and our Partnership Officer, Andy Dean, is managing the project.
Having completed the refurbishment of the 5th and final flat at Hardware House on the town’s Main Street, the Haltwhistle Partnership has now set its priorities for the next phase of community development work. As well as continuing with their core functions and very successful Older People’s and Zig Zag projects, the Trustees want to more actively support the economic development of the area. A key element of the plan is to promote cohesive working with the many other organisations, groups, businesses and individuals working for the benefit of Haltwhistle and the surrounding area. Several exciting ideas are in the pipeline and feasibility studies, business plans and funding streams are being explored.
If you are interested please apply for consideration with a brief CV and an outline of how you would like to contribute to the Partnership's work in writing to: Westbourne House, Main Street, Haltwhistle, NE49 0AZ or by email to our Administrator.
