Hall closure for Biffa Award funded roof replacement March 25th to April 10th 2016
We told you in January the good news about our success in being offered a Biffa Award grant to fund the much-needed Village Hall roof replacement, and that we were aiming to have the roof replaced during the Easter Holidays. I am pleased to be able to tell you that our plans are on target and the major work is scheduled to take place over the period March 25th to April 10th. In February, funded by the Biffa Award grant, we have had an essential Asbestos Inspection carried out. On receipt of that report the roofer confirmed that we are all systems go for the work to be carried out as planned. This means that the Hall will be closed for the 2-week period March 25th to April 10th, and you will see scaffolding being erected from Monday 21st March. Whilst the Hall will still be being used up until and including Thursday March 24th, we will be asking people to park at least 2 metres away from the building whilst the scaffolding is being erected during the week before the closure. We are just praying for decent weather over the 2 weeks so that work can progress on schedule.
