In 2009, the Green Sproughton community project completely relined and insulated the 17th Century barn which has been owned by the parish for 30 years. They used Pavaterm insulation which is reconstituted saw mill wasted and rates as 'BREEAM A'. the mid strey doors were also double glazed. These actions have led to a 39% heat saving per person using the barn which has benefited the whole community. In March 2010 a new community shop opened in one of the end wings of the barn.
