Lottery Bids

Following the completion of the new service block at the village hall in September 2009, a number of applications for funding have been made for renewal of the main hall itself, so far without success.   However, now that the Olympics are behind us, hopefully more money will be available for community schemes, and we intend to have another push at raising the money and putting to good use the funds mentioned above.

In order to have any likelihood of success we shall need to survey the parish by delivering questionnaires to all households, seeking approval and backing.  And, most importantly, proving a “Need for the Hall”.   The survey will be done in January, and we will be grateful if you will help the committee by filling these promptly and optimistically!

Many of us are fond of our old hall but it is now over 100 years old and we need to look to the future with flexible options and facilities taking us into the middle of the 21st Century.
