Village Hall Improvements

Some much needed maintenance, repair and improvement work on the Village Hall is starting this autumn.
The 3 rear hard wood windows on the main building have rotting sills, which will be replaced. Two of the windows (located near the rear fire exit) are original, dating back to 1890, and have unusual winding opening mechanisms. The third (located close to the kitchen) was designed and installed by Tony Morris, Village Hall Trustee, in the late 1980’s as part of the major facelift that was undertaken at that time. Keeping the original window designs and construction methods will help to maintain the character of the building.
Three metal frame windows located on the kitchen/toilet extension are to be replaced with UPVC framed windows, together with the kitchen rear door. The new windows will have better insulation properties, should reduce interior condensation problems, and will require less ongoing maintenance. The new dooor is of better construction, will require less maintenance, and provide better security.
Finally much needed pointing of the rear storage shed brickwork will be undertaken by local resident John Pudduck using special lime mortar.
The work will cost just less than £3000.  South Somerset District Council have extended a grant to us of £1390 and the local Parish Council have supported us to the tune of £150 with the balance being sourced from Village Hall funds

  1. Hey there! I’ve been following your blog for a while
    now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Tx!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the great work!

  2. Hey! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this
    issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

  3. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the
    same outcome.

  4. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here
    and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

    Fantastic work!
