As the Glenasmole Community Development comes near completion, let’s take a look at the journey we have been on in the transformation of the old Community Hall.

From the enclosed Precast Concrete Panels with overhead gas heaters, suspended timber floor with no windows and plastered ceiling.

Upgraded with Underfloor heating from electrical heatpump’ s with triple glazed windows and vaulted roof with original trusses exposed in all there glory.

The much-needed upgrade to meet modern standards, still respect’s the work of the original generation who built the centre 50 years ago. Where both with the work of today can sit hand and hand in the new centre.

Can’t wait till we all meet again in Glenasmole
