Boynton Village Hall

WREN Awarded £48,854: towards the construction of a new village hall in the village of Boynton, East Riding of Yorkshire.

The WREN grant has contributed towards the total rebuild of the village hall that was a pre-war timber Nissan hut given to the village in 1940. The need for the project came about due to the state of the original facility, in which the walls and roof were beyond repair, the only heating was provided by two portable gas heaters which in the colder months are insufficient, and led to a decline in user groups over the winter months. The tiny kitchen area has no running hot water or cooking facilities. The old village hall had very poor toilet facilities and no disabled access. The Village Hall Committee has addressed the problems with old facility and has provided a new inclusive village hall that can offer a range of facilities to the broadest possible user group. The hall has been built to meet the latest environmental guidelines, whilst complementing the Grade 2 listed farmhouse that it will stand alongside. This project is now complete and in use.
