The Village Hall refurbishment process begins this next week!!
1st October – 21st December
We have, at last reached a tipping point. The Big Lottery have finally granted us permission to get our refurbishment started. This is really good news!! It means that the contractors, Carters, can begin work this coming Monday, 1st October 2018.
Please note the following dates and facts and pop them in your diaries: 1st October ;Contractors move in and start making preparations. Start work in toilets and the main hall. 8th October;Work begins in earnest and the whole Village Hall is closed to the public until the end of December. Patio work begins. 21st December; Contractors break for Christmas – hopefully everything is completed by then. Meeting room – and alternatives;This will only be available for use between 1st and 7th October (we shall ensure access to the meeting room for that period and the disabled loo). Thereafter it will be closed to the public until the end of December.
We are currently looking for an alternative meeting room somewhere in the village.As soon as we have further details, we will let you know. The Car Park and access to the playing field; . The new car park surfacing will take place between 5th and 25th November. Up until that time, there will be vehicular access to the playing field, but between these dates, no access will be available. The Sports Club should note this and inform the Bowls Club. There will also be a specific route detailed for dog walkers.
The car park will be available for parking in the evening or at weekends, EXCEPT on the dates detailed above when it will be being resurfaced, It cannot be used during weekdays in the daytime.
Whilst the Patio is being built,the Sports Field will be being accessed by vehicles being used in this process, so please be aware of this if you are walking dogs or indeed if you have children who play games on the field.
Fundraising – not complete yet;
We have not yet raised all the funds we need to complete this process, so we will continue to work hard to achieve the full amount we need to make it a great success.
If there are any queries, please get back to me.
