Village Hall Refurbishment to start in March


Village Hall Refurbishment to start in March

Published 14 February 2019

The Parish Council is pleased to announce that the contract to carry out the refurbishment work has been awarded to local firm RJK Construction.

Work will commence on 25th March and will take about 8 weeks.

Every effort will be made to keep access to the main hall and upstairs rooms open, ask Julie Bamber for details concerning your particular meetings. However, assume that the kitchen and toilets will be unavailable during this period: Portaloos will be open outside.

The plans have changed slightly from those that have been displayed in the lobby for the last few months. The revised plans will be displayed in the Village Hall during the ‘Motherhood and Loss’ playground equipment launch event which will run from 2pm to 5pm on Saturday 2nd March. Representatives from the Parish Council Working Group and from RJK will be there to answer questions and canvass opinions.

For those who have not yet done so please ‘Buy a Brick’ as this work is only part of a continuing programme of refurbishment. We wish to thank those village organisations and individuals who have already donated to the Refurbishment Fund, which now stands at over £25,000. We would also like to thank ‘Groundworks’, the HS2 Community & Environment Fund, for their grant which has made this work possible.

The Parish Council leases the Village Hall from the Lichfield Diocesan Trust. We have received from the Trust the permissions to carry out this work and to obtain an extension to the current lease which expires in 2035. The secretary to the Trust writes “… we pass on our grateful thanks to the Parish Council for making this facility of enormous benefit to the local community”.
