Beoley Village Hall has received a £9,500 grant from the National Lottery to complete a refurbishment of its kitchen.
Andy Phillips, treasurer of the hall’s management committee, said: “Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in improving the facilities at Beoley Village Hall.
“This has included new toilets, a refurbished bar area, new boilers, CCTV and replacement windows.
“Getting the National Lottery funding for this latest project will really enable us to continue to provide first class facilities to the local community.”
Beoley Village Hall , located in Beoley, near Redditch, will use the cash to carry out the planned refurbishment of the kitchen that which had been put on hold due to the loss of income following the coronavirus outbreak.
There’s been a village hall in Beoley for more than 100 years.
Originally set up as a reading room thanks to an Andrew Carnegie Trust grant, the hall is now a very well used community facility with activities held every day in addition to celebrations such as christenings, anniversaries, and birthday parties.
The hall’s social committee also organise regular events including monthly jazz evenings with live bands together with other live music, comedy nights, cinema evenings and a variety of other entertainment.
The National Lottery Community Fund distributes money raised by National Lottery players for good causes and is the largest community funder in the UK.
The work at Beoley Village Hall is expected to begin in August.
