A letter from the Village Hall Committee
Dear Stinchcombe Village Resident,
On behalf of the Village Hall Committee, it is a great pleasure to provide you with an update on the excellent progress which has been made regarding the extension of the Village Hall Car Park. Despite the challenges which have been faced this year with the coronavirus pandemic, the initiative to extend the existing car park has continued thanks particularly to the energetic and effective leadership provided by Charlie Oakhill.
In the early spring the purchase of an additional area of land adjoining the Village Hall went ahead with the area subsequently levelled and prepared for later surfacing. This was followed by a tree and hedge planting initiative in April, which was effectively supported by many volunteers from the village who assisted during the period of lockdown. Grassing and fencing the area directly behind the Village Hall has added another attractive dimension to the Village Hall for activities and entertainment when life return to a more normal pattern.
In the meantime, we look forward to the next stage of the development with the start of the tarmac work at the end of this week. Work will commence on Friday 2nd October and should be completed by Wednesday 7th October. In order to minimize the disruption caused, it is anticipated that the working hours will be a little longer than usual with the contractor making an early start at 7.30 am on 2 days. During the pandemic greater flexibility has been allowed with working hours and we are keen to see this work completed without unnecessary inconvenience.
We look forward to the completion of this new car park facility, which there is no doubt will be of considerable benefit to wider Stinchcombe community.
Thank you for your continued support and interest.
Your Village Hall Committee
