Thanks to the Low Carbon Lake District Grant Scheme administered by The Lake District Foundation and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, The Armitt has been able to undertake another phase of lighting upgrades across the museum.
The most recent improvements have seen new LED motion sensored lights installed in the toilet facilities and new LED spotlights and linears put in across the main upstairs area. This has dramatically altered the way the spaces are lit and presented.
“These lights are not only important for the museum’s carbon reductions and energy savings but they will better protect and present The Armitt’s objects and artworks for future visitors”, says the Manager & Curator, Faye Morrissey. “It is with the support of grants from organisations such as the Lake District Foundation that we are able to make these positive changes and ensure we can work towards our sustainability goals. We are also incredibly thankful to designers, Lumenata, and electricians, Swift Electrical Solutions, for supporting us with this project”.
