Lincolnshire Rural Activity Centre is based in the heart of Lincolnshire providing a community hub for groups to come together and use the space. They have 33 acres of land in an area of outstanding natural beauty with equestrian facilities.  The activities range from Archery, horse shows, horticulture,  joinery, catering to horse riding clinics and many more for the local community to come and enjoy and learn new skills.

With the help from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire, the site has just recently invested in new LED lighting.

The old fluorescent lighting, as you can see in the before photo, gave the site a warm orange glow. The new LED lighting has transformed the space, making it bright and clear.

The Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme awarded a 38% grant of £4,275 towards this energy saving project.

The Activity Centre was really pleased with the outcome. Sarah Moss, Centre Manager for Lincolnshire Rural Activity Centre, said that:

“The new lights have transformed the place.  As you can see in the photos we had a very artificial yellow light that made the space dull and uninspiring but also use to cost us a lot of money to run. We now have new LED lighting which gives a natural day light that brightens the space up and is a much better light for all those that use the space.  We have had lots of positive feedback from those that use the arena and we are already seeing savings on our energy bill.  Thank you to Smart Energy for doing an audit and identifying areas where we could save money and reduce our impact on carbon emissions which also has created a much nicer space to work in”
