(November 1999) Sibford Village Hall – Proposed Extension

The Village Hall Committee held an open meeting on 29th September in the Hall to enable villagers to look at the draft plans and give their views.

Following this meeting and further consultations with groups who use the Hall, the general consensus was in favour of the proposal to extend the Village Hall.

It is envisaged that the Hall be extended to the side away from the road, to have a room with facilities primarily for children to use. The kitchen would be doubled in size and have access from a lobby running from the side of the Hall alongside the extension, to provide shelter for prams etc. A small meeting room with storage will replace the existing kitchen. A room for the Village Archives would be provided. Improved storage for tables underneath the stage is being considered. Hard standing near the garages (which will be re-sited) will facilitate access for those groups who store equipment there.

Funding for the proposed scheme would be applied for to the lottery and various Charities. Further information will be provided in regular updates in the Sibford Scene.
