The Blewbury Hall Charity seeks to provide a thriving facility at the centre of village activities enabling over 40 clubs and societies to meet. The Hall also acts as a centre for music, theatre and entertainment, as well as providing a space for primary school activities such as plays and special assemblies.

The refurbishment of the Hall is making good progress. We want the hall to continue to be at the heart of our community for another generation, making it more attractive, flexible, efficient and comfortable. 

We want to attract more users and be proud to invite our friends and guests. We have planning and building regulations approval and, with the help of frequent users, have completed the detailed design for the scheme.  This will:

• Improve efficiency and sustainability by insulating walls, roofs and loft and by installing energy efficient heating, lighting and double glazing. •  Enhance the appearance inside and out, by re-cladding the external elevations and renewing the internal decor.

• Increase the Post Office by 35%, the kitchen by 50%, storage by 80% and the waiting/meeting room by 16%.

• Connect storage to the Main Hall and Vale Room and the school to the hall.

• Modernise the toilets and all fixtures and fittings, relocating the Vale Room toilets to separate lobbies.

• Upgrade all fixtures and fittings, installing a sprung floor in the Main Hall.

We will split the scheme into two phases, which means we can make a start on construction this year and keep the Post Office and Surgery in continuous operation throughout the project.

We estimate we’ll need of order £500,000, taking account of fees and VAT. We have already secured over £250,000 through grants, fundraising and Parish Council support, so we’re half way there. More fundraising events are planned and we are applying for other grants, but we need your help. 

With the energy and resourcefulness of Blewbury and inspired by what other villages have been able to raise for similar projects, we can do this.
