Work begins on Church Hall Improvements in Saxilby
The Church Hall major refurbishment project in Church Lane is a step closer now that all the old wall and ceiling linings and
the floor have been removed, work on the store extension has begun, the new windows have been ordered and the new
kitchen fittings have been ordered.
The project is being funded by a £49,968.00 grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund, together with a £20,000 Community Facilities Grant from Lincolnshire County Council, an £8,000 Community Facilities Grant from West Lindsey District Council, a £10,000 grant from the Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation in London, and two other charitable donations as well as £15,000 from the Saxilby Church Funds.
Once it is open in October, it will provide an invaluable resource for the benefit of the whole community.
David Turner, Churchwarden and Lay Chairman of Saxilby PCC (Parochial Church Council) is excited that the project is starting to take shape. He says: “it is great to see our vision for this vital community facility moving closer to reality. We are extremely grateful for the funding WREN, LCC, WLDC and others have given us and we are looking forward to opening to the public.”
Cheryl Raynor, WREN's grant manager for Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire says: "Its always nice to see something we have funded start to take shape. We're delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile project and look forward to it benefiting community groups in Saxilby ."
The full refurbishment project will improve insulation standards, fire safety and exit routes, provide new windows, upgrade fire precautions, replace old electrics, install a hearing loop, refurbish kitchen and toilets, build additional storage and improve the outdoor amenity, lighting and circulation spaces.
