Trustees of a recreation ground which has its own pavilion with bar and hall facilities have agreed to look into kitting it out with the latest in environmental technology to make it purely powered by renewable sources.

And it is hoped it can all be done through 100pc grant funding.

The pavilion, on Stimpson's Piece recreation ground in Reepham would have ground source heating, a wind turbine and solar panels.

Trevor Bevan, trustee of the Stimpson's Piece charity, said: “If the existing boiler was replaced by a ground source heat pump and if we had a wind turbine and solar panels installed we could cut down considerably our heating costs and save a lot of money.

“And it could be fully funded by grants.”
