Stinchcombe Village Hall Autumn Update

Stinchcombe Village Hall Logo

Extension and Improvement Project

Following several public consultations earlier in the year The Village Hall Trustees have made changes to the design of the Hall extension and prioritised the installation of acoustic panels which were highlighted concerns from a few local residents. Full Planning permission was obtained for this improvement project, and we have obtained quotations from 4 local Builders. We are currently applying for Grant funding and planning several Fundraising events; details of events will be announced shortly. Subject to raising sufficient funds we hope to commence work in around 12 months.

Stinchcombe Village Hall Classes & Clubs

At the consultations it became apparent that a few people were not fully aware of current events and activities at the Hall, these are all listed on the Hall website and listed below.
