The building was built in 1993 using donated land and the proceeds from a small housing development. It has served the community very well providing facilities for social events, sports of all kinds, fairs and community meals but is now showing its age. The roof is failing and the lack of insulation makes it uncomfortable and expensive to use in the winter. We struggle to attract paying customers because the place is no longer appealing to today's market and without a timely reworking we know this valuable amenity will fall into disrepair. Our plan is a staged renovation and redevelopment programme,. Initially we will address the structural problems of the roof and windows but we also plan to reconfigure the internal facilities to make them more useable by the community and attractive to our visitors.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Village Hall is the hub of our village and serves groups from the Brownies to the Evergreens. Without this renovation the building is set to fall into disrepair. These changes will secure the building's future, improve access to its facilities and will improve income streams - making the building self-sustaining.
Steps to get it done:
The Village Hall houses various pieces of local memorabilia including a collection of panels painted with the cap badges of military regiments who passed through the village during WWII. You can read more about them here http://www.codfordvillage.org.uk/village-hall---bar.
