Panels to sit on village hall

Solar plan approved for Loxhore Hall.

THE Village Hall at Loxhore will be running under its own “steam” in the near future after approval was given for the installation of 16 solar panels on its roof.

North Devon Council has approved the scheme, which will generate electricity both for the hall and for exporting to the national grid.

A statement supporting the application said it would benefit the many local groups which used the hall. It also said the hall committee had circulated its intentions in the September issue of Loxhore Lines and the response had been very positive.
