Thurloxton Village Hall Redevelopment has begun
Work has started on the Village Hall this week. The overall amount of money required was in excess of £170,000 and this has been achieved by applying to various grant funding organisations aided by some very generous gifts from local villagers.
The committee would like to thank Viridor Credits, Sedgemoor District Council, Fairfield Charitable Trust and our local Parish Council for awarding us those grants and we are especially thankful to the various individuals who so generously donated monies which has enabled the project to commence. In addition, the entire modernisation of the hall would not have been possible without the continuous support of the local population of Thurloxton, Adsborough, Shearston, Farringdon, Clavelshay and Coombe.
The construction is being led by GLM Carpentry Services in conjunction with Shattock Associates, Surveyors. The hall will be damp proofed and insulated with new electrics, heating, plumbing, toilets, kitchen, store room and improved disabled facilities. The main hall will be enlarged slightly with an extension added to the annexe. Work is due to be completed by the end of July provided there are no ‘unpleasant surprises’.
We look forward to the hall being warm, dry and welcoming and sincerely hope that previous User Groups, who were forced to abandon using the hall due to its atrocious condition, will return. Please bear with us as there will be more trucks, noise and possible congestion in the village during this period. If you experience any major disruption, please contact one of the subcommittee Alastair, Roger or Rossanne email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Thanks in advance for your patience.
Two recent village surveys, undertaken in 2017 and 2018, showed that >40% of respondents stated they would be willing to organise or help organise a club. Anyone interested in fulfilling these ideas should contact a member of the committee or refer to our website. All ideas welcome.
