You might not realise it, but your local Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) isn’t just for servicemen and women. Like many other branches, the Newark location is open to the public for drinks, coffee mornings and small events. This boosts the local team’s budget a bit, but it’s also a source of company for both veterans and other members of the community.

Of course, with more people using the RAFA Newark’s facilities, the already-creaking boiler came under extra strain. Our British Gas Business Commercial Installation Manager assessed the branch’s boiler problems. The goal was to get the heating and hot water running again without RAFA Newark having to close whilst the work was being completed. And it was especially important to do so in time for the Battle of Britain 75th anniversary events.

In a few days, we’d replaced the old boiler, rewired for new combi boilers, cleaned the pipework and rebalanced the heating system, so the team could continue welcoming their community. Watch the video to find out how.
