Welcome to Charlton Marshall Village Hall

Charlton Marshall New Village Hall – update

By the time you read this the building of the new village hall will have started.

In June Big Lottery granted permission for the building to commence as they were satisfied there was sufficient funding secured to complete the project. This was ‘music’ to the management committee’s ears as they were eager to get under way.

A newsletter was delivered to all households in the village to give the good news.

The Contractors arrived on 9th July to prepare the site for work to commence on the 16th July. A ground breaking ceremony was held on 16th July with contractors, management committee and members of the community attending; the press were invited to record and publicise this memorable occasion.

The old hall closed on 13th July and will be demolished August/September which will provide the contractors a larger working site for parking, work cabins, materials etc. needed during the coming months.

As the new hall is being built on the car park it’s very visible for all to see (especially those on the upper deck of the bus!) and watch its progress.

Regular updates and photos will be posted on the village hall website www.charltonmarshallvillagehall.co.uk and on Charlton Marshall Village Hall Facebook page for everyone to access.

It’s an exciting time for the local and wider community to realise that this time next year it will be open for business.
