Natural Gas Fuels Spa Fun Run

Natural Gas Fuels Spa Fun Run image

Fun-runners stepped out in force on Wednesday night to participate in the annual Spa Primary School end-of-year fun run and walk, sponsored by Phoenix Natural Gas.

The highly anticipated event attracts hundreds of locals and is a firm favourite in the school calendar. This year saw a record number of participants complete the route around Montalto Estate, before returning to Spa Primary School to enjoy all the fun of the fair in a family fun day sponsored by Phoenix Natural Gas.

The event generated over £4,600 of funding for the school, which will go towards purchasing new iPads for pupils to use in the classroom and aid in their learning.

Spa Primary School Principal, Audrey Fitzsimons, said, “The end-of-year family fun run and walk is one of our favourite events and always attracts a huge crowd. I would like to thank all the pupils and their families for supporting this event and raising such a large amount of money to help fund vital equipment for the school.

“I would also like to thank Phoenix Natural Gas for their continued partnership working with the school. The company hosted a Spa public information event in the school back in March to provide locals with information on planned construction works and recently visited a number of our Primary 5 pupils to talk to them about staying safe around construction sites as Phoenix Natural Gas continues to work in the area. I am delighted to have Phoenix Natural Gas on board as sponsor of this fantastic event and continue our partnership working.”

Speaking about the partnership, Geri Wright, Phoenix Natural Gas Communications Manager said, “Phoenix Natural Gas has been working in the Spa area to extend the natural gas network and bring fuel choice to properties in the area. Throughout the duration of construction works in the area, we have been working in close partnership with Spa Primary School, recognising the vital role the school plays at the heart of the community.

“As a company actively engaged in corporate social responsibility we are delighted to support the Spa Fun Run and add deeper value to the local community which we serve. This was a fantastic and memorable event enjoyed by all and we look forward to the pupils being able to avail of additional IT equipment in the new school year, thanks to the generous fundraising efforts of all participants.”

Installing natural gas central heating does eliminate the need for a separate hot water tank, so it is possible to free up some space where the hot press currently exists. However, it is not a requirement of installing natural gas central heating that your hot water tank is removed, so it is entirely your choice.

Homeowners installing a new central heating appliance will be required to make an application to the Builiding Control department of their local council prior to work commencing.

Once you have requested your connection to the natural gas network, it can take up to 15 working days to get a planned connection date. Your natural gas connection is installed over approximately 5 working days, which includes re-instatement on private and public property.  The final stage is the internal installation completed by your installer which (depending on the work involved) can take on average 3 working days.

Currently Phoenix Natural Gas offers a free connection to the natural gas network, worth up to £750.  Work to install your natural gas appliance, e.g. central heating or gas fire is carried out by an independent Gas Safe registered installer.  Details of these installers can be found here.

There would be more energy saving benefits to change everything at once, but we realise that family budgets may prevent this. It is possible to change over in stages, as financial considerations allow.

As with any major home improvement there will be an element of disruption, although both Phoenix Natural Gas and Gas Safe registered installation companies (registered with Phoenix Natural Gas) will aim to keep this to an absolute minimum.

The network operator provides and maintains the natural gas network.  The supplier buys gas which they then sell to consumers via the network operator’s network.  Your supplier is your first point of contact for billing queries and payment card requests.

Phoenix Natural Gas is the gas transporter and network operator.  We do not supply natural gas.  Details of gas suppliers in the greater Belfast area can be found here.

Please call your gas supplier or 03454 55 55 55 for help and advice.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Phoenix Natural Gas is the network operator and not the gas supplier.  Therefore, you will need to speak to your gas supplier.  Details of suppliers can be found here.

On occasion Phoenix Natural Gas will need to carry essential maintenance on the gas meter.  We will endeavour to notify you of this to enable access to your gas appliances after the work is carried out. However, we know that this is not always convenient for consumers. 

If we have been at your property and left a no access card this will give the appropriate number to call to get your gas switched back on.  If you have any questions regarding this please contact our customer services team on 03454 55 55 55.

Natural gas is the fuel of choice for many consumers across Europe with 20 million customers in Great Britain alone. Phoenix Natural Gas continually monitors the system for safety and operates a 24-hour emergency response service, 365 days a year. All gas appliances should be correctly installed by a Gas Safe registered installation company and should be checked annually.

Natural gas is a very convenient, clean and versatile fuel. But like all fuels it must be handled wisely to ensure its safety and efficiency. If you think you smell gas, you should contact the 24-hour gas emergency service on 0800 002 001 or click here for further advice.


No. All installers who are eligible to carry out natural gas work have been registered with Gas Safe Register, which is the national watchdog for gas safety in the UK. Many of these installers will also be registered with Phoenix Natural Gas, which ensures that you can take advantage of our many offers and incentives for new customers switching to natural gas.

A number of installation companies offer a finance facility which allows you to install a new high efficiency natural gas system and spread the cost of installation over a fixed number of months.
