A hall fit for the 21st Century of which we are all proud
We want the hall to continue to be at the heart of our community for another generation, making it more attractive, flexible, efficient and comfortable. We want to attract more users and be proud to invite our friends and guests.
Necessary upgrades and replacements
Potential enhancements (subject to cost)
To do this, we’ll need of order £400,000, including fees and VAT. We have £240,000 in the bank raised by the Parish Council and from fundraising in the village and personal donations. We will re-apply for £80,000 of grants previously pledged to the earlier scheme, which included an extension. We have included all those who have so far donated or previously pledged to the project in the list of sponsors and supporters. We still have to find £80,000 from further grants, personal donations and village fundraising.
With the energy and resourcefulness of Blewbury and inspired by what other villages have been able to raise for similar projects, we can do this.
We have appointed Ridge to support us as building surveyors, cost engineers and project managers.
Supporting Our Village Hall
A number of people have told us how much the Village Hall has meant to them and their families over the years and that they would like to make a personal donation to the refurbishment. If you would like the opportunity to support the project in this way, please see further details on our Comments & Donations page. If you prefer, you can make a donation on our Virgin Money Giving page.
Donations may be made singly or over a period of time (i.e. monthly, quarterly or annually by standing order) and if Gift Aided the Government will increase your donation by 25%. Higher rate taxpayers will have their donation set off against their higher rate tax. Please see the separate forms linked from our Donations page.
If you have any ideas for fundraising or if you have any comments at all on what is proposed, please send them to Steve White at April Cottage or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to come back to the Village Hall website, where we’ll report on progress and answer questions, or check out our Facebook page.
