Village hall set for revamp

Have your say

A village hall is set for a £7,000 revamp to make it more comfortable and energy-efficient.

The Deepcar Village Hall is being given a makeover that will see its ceiling, lighting and insulation replaced.

The work is being led by Deepcar Village Community Association, who have already worked on replacing the boiler, repairing the windows and general decorating.

From Saturday, August 22, the hall’s old ceiling will be stripped out and new insulation will be sprayed on the inside of the roof next week.

This will reduce condensation in the roof space, which is currently a problem.

Funding for the project is coming from The Veolia Environmental Trust who have awarded a grant of £7,000 through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Brian Middleton from the Deepcar Village Community Association, said: “By improving our facilities we will be able to provide services and events in comfortable surroundings, which we hope will revive the local community spirit. We are delighted that work is starting.”
