marks start of £90k project to extend Brent Knoll Parish
£90,000 project to extend Brent Knoll Parish Hall has reached
an important milestone this week with the start of building work.
special 'ground cutting ceremony' was held in the village on Tuesday
(April 10th) when members of the Parish Hall Committee, Parish
Council and building contractors came together.
Filmer, Chairman of Brent Knoll Parish Hall, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The extension will create a much-needed new meeting room,
store room and disabled toilet and will enable the hall to cater
for more local groups that would like to hold their meetings in
a number of occasions we have had to turn away prospective users
because the main hall is so well used and time slots have not
added: "Our existing meeting room is adjacent to the main
hall and, although well used, does have the drawback that if groups
that generate noise such as youth groups and dance groups are
using the main hall the noise can have an impact on other users."
new extension will make another room available that can work independently
from the main hall to overcome the noise problem and it will also
have its own independent access."
Page, Hall Treasurer, said that the project is being partfunded
by £20,000 of community cash from environmental firm Viridor,
plus grants from the Nuttall Trust and Brent Knoll Parish Council
and a loan has also been obtained from the Charity Bank. Building
work is due to be completed in July.
