Village Hall Transformation
The Village Hall is set to be transformed thanks to a grant of over £10,000 from funding body WREN.
The money, awarded by WREN's FCC Community Action Fund, will be used to upgrade the Hot Water Systems and refurbish the walls and ceiling and improve electrical services in the Village Hall.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Richard Smith, WREN's grant manager for Cheshire, says: "We're delighted to be supporting the building improvements at Church Minshull Village Hall project and pleased our funding will make such a difference to so many groups of people in Church Minshull and the surrounding areas. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that benefit local communities and we're looking forward to this one having a positive impact very soon."
It is hoped that the refurbished Village Hall will be ready to use in May 2018.
In the meantime, the Village Hall will remain open for bookings as usual until the works start, when the Hall will be closed for about two weeks. For further information please look out for future updates here, speak to a Trustee or email email@example.com
