Hall Renovation Project

Hall Renovation Project

Lead Organisation: Nancegollan Village Hall
Investment Priority: Community and Place
Fund: Community Capacity Fund
SPF awarded: £12,220
Location: Nancegollan, Helston

Originally a Methodist chapel, the building was purchased by local villagers and transformed into a Village Hall in 1997 .

In a village where transport links are limited, Nancegollan Village Hall assumes a vital role in bringing the community together, offering a warm and inviting atmosphere for everyone to enjoy, as well as space for various clubs and groups to gather and connect. The Community Café in the hall has had a significant impact on the mental health and well-being of individuals in the village and beyond, even catching the attention of BBC Spotlight and ITV News.

However, in order to better serve the community and unlock its full potential, the Village Hall requires some improvements. The proposed plans aim to significantly enhance the services offered at the hall, including the addition of a larger kitchen, extra meeting spaces, and the establishment of a memory café. To kickstart this project, the village hall has secured funding from the community capacity program. This initial phase will involve creating a comprehensive schedule of works, detailed drawings, and a surveyor’s assessment. Additionally, an economic impact assessment will be conducted to analyse the potential benefits that the renovated facilities will bring to the community. Furthermore, an energy audit and efficiency improvements report will be completed to evaluate the current energy consumption and carbon footprint of the village hall. Lastly, a licensed surveyor will conduct an assessment to ensure that the renovation project does not disturb or harm any protected wildlife species, such as bats and barn owls.

Once this stage is successfully completed it will lay the foundations for Nancegollan Village Hall to apply for additional funding to finalise the renovations of this beloved community space.
