Welcome to the Peasemore Village Hall refurbishment project page, on this page we will gather all the latest information and documents relating to the project initiated in 2024 to carry out a refurbishment to this key village facility

VISION

  1. To ensure the Village Hall is a key asset for the whole community for years to come
  2. A comfortable, efficient, accessible and modern facility

WHY REFURBISH

  1. The Hall is poorly insulated, has rapid heat loss and high running costs
  2. Kitchen is small, outdated and lacking facilities
  3. Toilets need modernisation and take up large amount of space
  4. Ceiling in poor repair with inefficient lighting

KEY FEATURES OF DESIGN PROPOSAL

  1. Enlarge, modernise and fully equip the kitchen relocating to existing toilets
  2. Insulate all the walls and the storeroom
  3. Build small extension to accommodate 3 toilets in a more discrete location
  4. It is still undecided to reinstate original vaulted ceiling (as subject to acoustic evaluation)
  5. Install energy efficient feature lighting
  6. Add storage space in the toilet lobby area
  7. Address accessibility issues
  8. Redecorate throughout
  9. Minor external enhancements

HOW DO WE PAY FOR THIS

  1. Costs include the build (est £130k) plus VAT, fees and contingency
  2. Most of the monies will be raised through grants and funding from various bodies
  3. We will use a professional fund raiser to help secure this finance
  4. The Parish Council precept will not fund the refurbishment
  5. Grant providers expect to see community fundraising and donations no matter how small
  6. Raising the funds assumed to take between 18-30 months
