An update on progress from the Project Chairman, Andrew Blencowe...
"Shortly after we were able to announce success in our bid for Lottery funding back in June, we have been working hard on the detail of the Project and waiting for the result of an application to renew planning permission.
Our original permission expired in the summer and the process of renewing it has proved more arduous than expected. However, we are told we will have the permission by the time you read this. Then all the preparatory work we have undertaken during the summer will be translated into action.
Demolition of the old hall is now scheduled for November with site preparation starting any time soon to enable the construction work to commence early in the New Year. In this first stage, while the demolition contractors are at work, access to the playing field and adjoining facilities will be interrupted briefly. Entry on the site will be forbidden. We will provide more information about this on Facebook.
As I said before, we could not proceed without the magnificent generosity of Big Lottery Fund and all the National Lottery players who can be assured that their money is being put to good use.
