The money will help the museum to install LED lighting. Changing to LED lighting will reduce the facility’s energy bills and help to reduce its carbon footprint. The reduction in cost is estimated to be around £4,000 per year. The museum is part of the Reducing Bills: Greening Museums programme and received an eco-assessment from Northfield Eco Centre earlier this year.
“It is great to see that the museum has not only been recognised for the standard of its work but that this has led to receiving a grant. This money will enable the museum to keep providing an excellent service to local people in a way which is cost effective and reduces its impact on the environment.”
Councillor Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts and Leisure, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council
