January 2022 update
Our grade 2 listed church hall is subsiding, has damp in several rooms and has leaking roofs. It needs a lot of TLC!
The hall is truly a village asset, being used by the Saxon Preschool and many village organisations for the majority of the week.
So, we have decided to embark on an ambitious project to not only rectify these issues but upgrade existing "tired" facilities and to "redesign and develop" the building to provide the village community with a facility worthy of the 21st century!
During 2021 we consulted with users to produce a "Brief". We appointed an architect to design a scheme for the hall which would deliver the requirements of the brief. He needed surveys and investigations to be carried out, and has now come up with "a plan!"
The next steps will be to apply for planning permission and quantify the costs of the project in detail. At this stage we will be able to begin applying for grants to actually carry out the works. As we still have costs to incurr before we reach that stage any donations in support of the project would be very welcome, and joyously and gratefully received.
Click on the links below to see the plans, we also hope to re-instate the old wall on the High Street which was demolished in the 60's, to create a safe outdoor space for the pre-school - see photograph
