A welcome cash initiative from Cotswold District Council has given a Churn Valley landmark building a new lease of life.
The funding for community projects has allocated £10,000 to the North Cerney Memorial Hall to help with its renovation.
Cllr Paul Hodgkinson has worked with the Hall’s management committee to get the grant from the Council. The money will be pooled with cash raised from other fundraising events, grants and generous donors to bring the Hall back to its former state for the benefit of local villages:
“The Hall’s committee – along with other local people – has been working like stink to raise money to make the building a really welcoming, warm and attractive venue for everyone to use. It’s got a lot of history and is already looking great with new decoration inside. I know the toilets will be replaced soon and the heating upgraded later in the year so the place is going to look splendid!”
“Along with the excellent village hall at Rendcomb, the Churn Valley will soon have two community buildings which we can use and be proud of.”
