Trustees at Stanhope Hall are celebrating after being awarded a £7,820 grant towards a series of energy saving measures.
The money has come from Lincolnshire County Council and will help pay for a number of improvements in the main hall, including new boilers.
Officials says the improvements will benefit the many organisations which use the hall - and help save money on day-to-day running costs.
The grant is open for all communities to apply for and covers a number of improvements and additions - up to 50% of the costs.
Bill Aron chairman of the Hall’s trustees, said: “The money will go towards the new gas boilers, energy saving lighting and thermal ceiling tiles.
“Work has already started.”
Rose Williams, who organises bookings at the hall, added: “The new boilers will be a benefit to all the groups that hire the hall.
“It is a large area and the old boilers were unreliable and always breaking down.”
Maria Pell, the hall’s treasurer, said: “The running costs should be greatly reduced as further work is carried out to enhance the building.”
The hall is used by many different town-based organisations and recently staged two major events - a walking festival and a World War One exhibition.
It is also an increasingly popular venue for weddings and other social events.
The hall also hosts the always popular Robert Bell auctions.
