The Gardens Gallery in Montpellier, Cheltenham re-opened on 6 February 2013 with its new, more visually attractive, front facade with six double-glazed panels replacing the previous two single glazed ones. This completed the changes made as part of the Energy Reduction Project and the Gallery is hoping the changes will reduce its electricity consumption by 50% per year.
The Gallery is grateful for the generous grants of £2.5K from the Summerfield Charitable Trust, £3.3K from the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust paid out of Landfill Tax contributions donated by Cory Environmental, and £3K from the Cheltenham Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Improvement Fund.
