SUCCESS, TO THE TUNE OF £196,924.75.
Rebuilding the hall at the Leisure Centre can now go ahead!
Grants have been awarded to enable the work to be done through July and August this summer. The hall will remain a multi-function room of substantial size, our unique selling point in the area. We can host sports and social events and now it will all be to a much higher standard.
There will be a fresh look outside, with new insulated exterior cladding, walls and roof, and large feature windows. Inside, we plan complete redecoration, with a purpose-designed sound system, acoustic baffles, air conditioning and lighting to cover the various requirements of our regular and occasional users. We will be able to black out the windows to revive the community cinema, but need a little extra funding and a person to lead that.
This is only the start. Phase 2 begins as soon as we have drawn breath and can develop the plans for the rest of the building. Would you like to join a winning team? There is still a lot to consider and new ideas would be very welcome, and new friends to share the fun. We will be holding an information event soon, so look out for that. It is your community centre, for you to enjoy. Huge thanks to those who have contributed so much so far.
At this time especial thanks to the two bodies who are putting up the money:
FCC Communities Foundation Ltd – £100,000, formerly known as WREN, the landfill fund and Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE), LEADER Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways, £96,924.75.
Keep up to date with all that is happening, our regular and irregular events, parties, functions etc, by bookmarking our website, and liking our Facebook Page. We would really value your support.
– Dr Richard Moore, chair, and all the committee, May 20th, 2019.
