Parish Hall News
A year ago SHARE launched “Power The Night With Sunlight”, to gain votes for an M&S Energy grant to install a battery to store the energy produced by the PV panels all day around. Thank you to the 1000s that voted and pledged money for gifts, BUT despite the huge support, we came second. However, this summer M&S Energy asked if we could complete our project by the end of September 2018. We did, despite a scare on the deadline when the installer’s wife went into early labour! The data produced by the battery storage so far is really interesting and it is encouraging to see the savings. Within the budget SHARE are also installing new low energy light fittings throughout the hall.
The Parish Hall committee and the Parish Council have just secured grant funding for further improvements at the hall and planning in underway for new flooring, heating and hopefully more.
If you think you have the skills to help with this project, in particular advice is needed on costing the various ways the insulation and heating could be improved, from a quantity surveyor for example. Contact David Skelton 382397 firstname.lastname@example.org
SHARE will be given the old floor boards, what can we/you do with them? If you’d like a piece of history, let Astrid know. SHARE@south-hill.co.uk 383620

On Saturday 18th August the 59th South Hill Horticultural Show was held at the Parish Hall. There was a good number of new entrants this year and we would like to thank the committee and all friends of the show for their help in running and organising the event.
The Callington Young Farmers had a dog show in the playing field, some stall holders set up under the awning and our cream teas were available for all to enjoy.
Next year is our Golden 60 years! The show will be held on Saturday 17th August 2019 and we are hoping to make it bigger and better than ever. To make this happen we do however need even more help and support. We are looking for any stall holders, organisations, clubs and groups to join us. If you are interested please get in touch.
