Gillingham village hall
The village hall at Gillingham, near Beccles, is well used, but following plans to refresh the overall facilities, plans were drawn up to restructure their toilet provision. Previously, the toilets were poorly laid out, and there was inadequate provision for disabled users. Over time, they became increasingly difficult to maintain due to their age.
Although the main entrance to the hall was via a slope. this was quite steep, and gave no help to those who needed to use handrails. A new ramp and steps with handrails has been built, to complement the new entrance doors.
WREN funding was awarded to the toilet restructuring, which now offers updated facilities for all user groups, and gives the hall a better opportunity to encourage increased hirings, making them more sustainable.
