Renewal Project Update – Number 1 – 18 February 2016



What funding do we already have?

The Big Lottery Fund has awarded Diddlebury Village Hall charity £576,000 towards the Renewal Project. This takes us a long way towards the total needed to complete the Project.

Do we need additional funding?

Yes, we need to raise £30,000 to meet the Lottery’s requirements plus more to provide all the improvements that we would really like to implement. Some has already been raised and further grants and donations are being sought.

When is construction due to start?

The tendering, evaluation and selection process, which has to meet the Big Lottery requirements, will take around five months. We are therefore looking at May/June before work will start. This will take up to 9 months to complete.

Will construction affect car parking at the Hall?

Yes it will. The contactors require access and some of the area around the Hall will be fenced off for safety reasons. The Committee will be consulting with the Architect, School, Parish Council, Church and Community to minimise the impact of this
