Volunteers sought for village hall extension


The Chapel St Leonards Village Hall extension project seeks skilled enthusiasts.

The village hall in Chapel St Leonards provides social and leisure activities to the local community and as the demand for facilities grows, the village hall committee have responded by agreeing the need for an extension project.

A group of committed volunteer members of the community have met with Officers at East Lindsey District Council and the Council for Voluntary Services and Parish Councillors, to agree the best way forward.

The potential to secure funds relies on the project putting together a strong ‘business plan’ for community facilities, sports changing rooms and storage.

Chairman of the village hall, Mrs Chris Lewry, said: ‘The group need a range of people with the right skills to make it happen. We are keen to encourage people with a range of skills including, project management, administrative, financial and communications skills to join the project team and make the village hall extension a reality’.

James Ward, Grants Officer at East Lindsey District Council said: ‘With the right project plan in place there are real opportunities to access the funds to complete this project and I would encourage people with the right skills to come forward and join the working group’.

The next project meeting will be held on April 14 and anyone interested in being involved should contact, Coun Fiona Brown on Fiona.Brown@e-Lindsey.gov.uk or call 07737 713550.
