Built in 1937 our large hall with kitchen and ancilliary rooms has been the scene of many a convivial club, class and party over the past 80 years. Apart from an occaisional lick of paint there’s been little change and they’re now a bit tired in parts and down right cold and leaky in others.
So after much discussion with the congregation and current users we have come up with a scheme to revitalise the halls. In the next few years you will be able to see:
- a proper wide stair case linking the listed Church building with the halls
- a wheelchair accessible lift up to the Church and choir vestry (studio)
- a replacement flat roof over the link building that keeps us dry
- a new dry, warm, bright, accessible studio open to all
- more numerous and new toilets, which will allow the Church and community users to host larger events or several events at once
- bright cosy meeting rooms behind the stage
You won’t be able to see it but we’ll be adding:
- masses of insulation
- a new heating system
Community groups told us that they want to keep the stage so we altered our plans to meet the needs of local groups.
