Our village hall is in a poor state. Whilst it can be used, it is badly in need of some refurbishment to turn it into the modern facility that our village deserves. We have planned a staged works programme to achieve this, which will create new toilets and kitchen area, restore the building's structure and make it a village facility which we can all be proud of. Other villages have these facilities and they form real community centres. We can have them too.
It will cost about £150,000 to modernise our hall, We aim to raise much of that through donations from grant-giving organisations, but these normally require us to have raised a proportion of the cost from our own fundraising activities. If that contribution is 10 percent, we'll have to raise £15,000 by other means.
We need your commitment to our village hall. The refurbishment project cannot start until we have raised a substantial sum for individual donors.
We hope that you will make a contribution to our Refurbishment Appeal - as generously as you can.
