Step-Up Pre-School

Step Up Pre-School in Dilton Marsh were granted funding for a new heating and hot water system from our Stronger Communities Fund back in August.

The boiler system at the school had not been working during the spring term time, leaving them with no heating or hot water. Over the warmer months heating was not required, but hot water was needed for handwashing/hygiene. Due to COVID-19, the school was unable to run its usual fundraising events and as a privately-owned business, rarely qualify for any grants. At a time when many local families were under a financial strain, the pre-school felt it was not appropriate to ask the parents and wider community for financial help.

We provided the labour for this project, which included two engineers for 40 hours each, an electrician for half a day and a roofer for a couple of hours. The materials were kindly donated by Bradford Building Supplies.

We, at Bradfords, have built a strong relationship with Selwood Housing. It has been a pleasure working with all those involved in this project. The community sits at the heart of what Bradfords stands for so it was great to have the opportunity to support such a good cause.

This project helped the school not only by providing heating and hot water and more usable space, but they will also soon start saving on their energy bills. But most importantly the children have a warm, safe environment to learn in.

Step Up Pre-School are immensely grateful and overwhelmed with our brand-new heating and hot water system supplied by the Stronger Communities Fund grant scheme. We are a privately owned business so very rarely qualify for any grants. It has allowed us to make better use of the space in our classrooms & will also save us money on our energy bills in the long run. Thank you Selwood Housing and Bradford Building Supplies from all at Step-Up.

Delighted to see this update from the YMCA Green Shoots nursery in Studley Green. The charity was awarded a grant from our Stronger Communities Fund to help block pave a gravelled area of the garden, opening it up for more children to use. The paved areas provide a smooth surface and an area for those who need smaller, quieter spaces to play in. ... See MoreSee Less

Many boilers will need to have their system pressure topped up with water at some stage. To check if your boiler needs to be topped up, locate the pressure gauge on the front of the system. If the dial is too low and is in the red, then you will need to repressurise it. If your boiler's pressure is too low, it can prevent the system from heating up efficiently, which could lead to a loss of hot water. If your boiler's pressure is too high, you can request an appointment for our repairs team to come out to your home: ecs.page.link/bbvqK ... See MoreSee Less

Lol, I topped my pressure up on my boiler after being shown.. but what the engineer forgot to mention is the pressure increases when heating is on anyway, so don't pressurise when off as like me my pressure was over 4 and I needed an emergency call out . It is not as easy as just being shown.
