Aston On Trent War Memorial Hall Upgrade

The Aston On Trent War Memorial Hall was built around 1924 as a memorial to the men of the village who lost their lives in the First World War.  A wooden-framed scout activity hut also occupied the site which following a structural survey was shown to be near the end of its life.

These building were the hub of the village, and venues for over 20 local groups such as the playgroup, Scouts and Brownies, WI, social activities for older members and charitable events/private functions.

The expansion of the village, the poor standard of utilities in the hall, lack of disabled facilities and dilapidation of the activity hall meant that the facility needed to be upgraded.

The upgrade comprised refurbishment of the main hall and replacement of the activity hall to meet the growing needs of the local community and comply with current disabled access legislation.

The consultation undertaken identified the following areas in need of improvement:

  • new activity hall, to replace the existing Scout hall
  • new kitchen
  • disabled facilities
  • new toilets, including secure children's toilets in the activity hall
  • refurbish Memorial Hall
  • upgrade meeting room
  • improve stage area
  • fit for purpose storage for all user groups
  • storage for the Well Dressing equipment
  • safe external play area for pre-school groups
  • extend and improve car parking
