We’ve done it!!! We’ve been awarded £148,000 by the Big Lottery!
After six years of preparation, investigation, visits, planning and applications, we have been told that we have been successful in our bid for funds to renovate the Hall.
But it isn’t all plain sailing yet; there are four important conditions we have to meet;
a) We need to raise an additional £46,600 (by March 2018) before they will release this money, £2,600 of which has to be raised locally. This is really Exciting News!!!!
b) We need to write a Business Plan for the next three years, acceptable to the Big Lottery Assessors.
c) We need to write an acceptable Project Development Plan.
d) We need to gain the input of the Dennington under 18 year-old children on what they would like to see happening at the Village Hall.
All of this is possible which is excellent and we have already started on the Business Plan and the
Development Plan. For the rest, we need your help. We have started the process of raising more funds and have so far raised £20,000, though £4,000 of that is conditional on us raising the full amount. Thus we still have £26,600 to raise, of which at least £2,600 needs to be raised locally. We will be holding a concert on 14th April and there will be a Race Night in March, both of which we hope you will attend and provide us with your much needed support.
This will not however raise the full amount, so we very much hope that some of you may be willing to
contribute something towards the refurbishment of the Hall.
We are looking for a part-time Hall and bar manager
Are you retired or semi-retired? Would you like to earn an additional income?
We need someone who would like to take on the role of Hall Manager for the Village Hall. It’s an
exciting time for us as we move ahead into a whole new era and this promises to become a role with
great job satisfaction. We are also looking for someone to run the bar.
