Project Costs and Funding
Including professional fees and VAT liabilities, the project is estimated to cost of order £500,000. By January 2017 we had raised nearly £300,000. We now need to raise another £200,000 to finish the job. If we can’t raise all the funds required we will drop some aspects of the design or defer them for later one-off projects managed by the hall management committee.

We now need to raise another £200,000. Fundraising events are continuing in the village. People have said that the hall means a lot to them and their families and are making personal donations. Further grant applications are being made and local businesses are being asked if they wish to support the project. We must keep up the momentum.
