VILLAGE HALL REFURBISHMENT – PRESENTATION OF CHEQUE

Sir Christopher Lees, Chairman of the South Dorset Local Action Group for LEADER presented trustees of Sydling St Nicholas Village Hall with a cheque for £97,071 to kickstart a refurbishment programme which has been a year in the planning.

The work will include an extension to, and refitting of, the kitchen and serving area, the creation of new storage facilities for hall furniture, refurbishment of the area to the rear of the stage and a new heating system.

Chairman of the Village Hall Trustees Laura Cheney said: “This award is the culmination of 12 months of hard work by the trustees.  “We are very excited about being able to turn our ideas into reality by early next year and by so doing provide a first rate facility for the benefit of the whole community”.

LEADER funding is available to local businesses, communities, farmers, foresters and land managers. LEADER is a French acronym which roughly translates as ‘Liaison among Actors in Rural Economic Development’.
