Time is running out for villagers to commit cash to a community hall project.

More than £110,000 has been pledged to Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust, which hopes to create a hub at the recreation club in Stonewell Drive.

But the trust is targeting £250,000 from villagers’ pledges, with a deadline of September 30 fast approaching.

People are able to support the project through community share or buy-a-brick schemes.

Trust spokesman Ian Sheppard said: “There are more than 2,000 other people and businesses in the village which could pledge. If just half pledged £100 it would raise a further £100,000.

“The number of pledges is just as important as the amount raised because it shows potential funders the village supports the new building.”
