Strumpshaw Community Hall – launching in lockdown and looking to the future

Village and community halls everywhere have felt keenly the impact of COVID-19 on their ability to provide social and recreational events. For many the ongoing lack of income has presented a tangible financial crisis. How much more so then, for a brand-new community hall, whose planned launch coincided with the first pandemic lockdown in March 2020?

At CAN we are helping combat fuel poverty across and beyond Norfolk by running more of our free online energy cost training sessions for VCSE frontline staff and volunteers.

Village Halls Week – 25th to 29th January – and a new ‘Domesday Book’

ThinkingFuel: buying heating oil collectively – and helping the community at the same time

Many of you reading this will know about ThinkingFuel, our collective heating oil buying scheme. And you’ll know that the aim is to help support householders across Norfolk who depend on heating oil to heat their homes, and for whom the unregulated cost of heating oil is a constant worry.  

Who wants to save £254 on their energy bills?

At CAN we work closely with the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk on the Big Switch and Save energy switching project.  There are three important news items about Big Switch and Save that we’d like to convey to West Norfolk residents, and we’d be grateful for the help of VCSE groups and organisations working in the area to help spread the word.

Hanworth Memorial Hall - and keeping your eggs in separate baskets…

At CAN we help and support a great many community projects to find the funding they need to make their vision a reality. Finding the right funder can be a minefield, and a complex process that takes time and commitment.
