Barnburgh Village Hall Upgrade

The project originated three years ago when it was recognised by the Village Hall Management Committee and through user feedback that the village hall, built in 1973 and although adequately maintained in the interim, needed extending, upgrading and making fully compliant with current legislation. 

Lack of storage space constrained the full utilisation of all the communal facilities, therefore an extension of the hall was proposed, together with upgraded externally housed storage for community tables and chairs. 

The village hall, whilst open to all, presents access problems for the disabled and infirm. The improvements include an entrance ramp; new appropriate front doors, a toilet for the disabled and the widening of some internal doors and lowering of kitchen/serving units. 

The completed project has provided an updated and extended village hall, fully compliant with current legislation. The project has updated the village hall and enhanced the site at the centre of the village, as well as providing a focal point for community use which will benefit the whole community.

Current users include dancing classes, baby clinic, meetings, playgroup, Reliant Owners Club, Parish Council meetings, martial arts, children's parties, polling station, exercise classes and for meetings.
