In August 2014, HVHT was awarded a Big Lottery Fund grant of £9608 for improvements to the interior of the village hall. There are three stages to this refurbishment, which must be completed within one year of receiving the grant.
Stage 1 New flooring, heating and curtains in the main hall. Completed and celebrated with a Big Breakfast event in October 2014.
Stage 2 New fixtures, fittings and flooring for all toilet areas; reconfiguration to create a storage area for tables and chairs. Currently ongoing and expected to be completed by the end of February 2015.
Stage 3 Kitchen revamp, with new units, sink and flooring. Anticipated start time mid-July 2015.
Separately from grant-funded work, painting and decorating will be carried out to give our much-loved old hall a fresh, new look.
On completion, HVHT plan to hold an Open Day event to show off our revamped hall and to thank the Big Lottery Fund for making it possible.
