Helland Village Hall

Helland Village Hall

Lead Organisation: Helland Village Hall

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Levelling up Fund

SPF awarded: £27,115

Location: Helland, Bodmin

Helland village hall is the only public building in Helland village and is available for local community use for clubs such as Tai Chi, table tennis, Pilates, Boxfit, Warhammer and singing and signing, together with the availability to hire privately. The committee also organise quiz nights, beetle drives, pop-up pubs and theatre and music nights to bring the community together whilst raising funds to keep the hall active.

 

This project will see a refurbishment of the existing toilets, together with the installation of a separate disabled toilet. There will be a complete refit of the toilets, sinks and urinals together with hot water heaters.

 

The committee will also purchase a sound system and projector with hearing loop which will allow them to host film nights and use the equipment for other events and activities. This has been requested by parishioners and people hiring the hall, so will be of great benefit to the community.

 

The Hall is a member of the Carn to Cove scheme and would therefore be able to promote film nights using their own equipment instead of hiring and thus reducing costs. By providing a hearing loop for people, the film nights will be inclusive and supportive of people with hearing impairments. This will also assist with the singing and signing group when they meet on a regular basis.

 

The refurbishments and installation of the sound system and projector will encourage new members of the community and surrounding areas to use the hall. It will improve accessibility for all and promote pride in the hall along with a feeling of belonging in the community. The hall will be a more modern facility and better equipped to meet the community’s needs.
