People in Congresbury are being asked to save their pennies in order to raise vital cash for a new village hall.

A spring penny savings challenge launched by the Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust encourages villagers to save their pennies through February and March for the new hall project.

The hall will be built in Stonewell Drive after the proposal was supported by villagers through a referendum last year.

A trust spokesman said: 
“More than 700 Congresbury residents voted in favour of the new village hall plans in September and the project team are looking to this initiative as a barometer for actual engagement and commitment from villagers.”

The trust expects the project to cost about £1.8-2.4million.
