Village hall project to receive ‘full support’ from council

Plans to build a village hall will receive ‘full support’ from Congresbury Parish Council after the ‘hard work’ of volunteers.
The parish council has declared its backing of Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust’s project to create a mixed-use facility at the King George V Playing Fields, in Stonewell Drive.
The hall would be used for a variety of purposes, including by Congresbury’s football, tennis and cricket clubs – and earlier this month the trust called on villagers to take part in a community share scheme to raise approximately £250,000.
At its June 11 meeting, the parish council agreed to assist the project, if needed.
A statement following the meeting stated: “The parish council acknowledges the hard work by the new hall development team to progress the project to this stage.
“Full support will be given to the project with regard to any grant applications.”
The trust believes it will cost about £1.5-1.8million to build the hall.
