Background

Lambeage Hall is the much loved community hall in the remote village of Coverack serving the residents of Coverack and its surrounding hamlets. The hall was built in the 1920s to serve the social welfare needs and leisure activities of residents of Coverack and the surrounding area following WW1.  It is the cultural and social hub of the village running many activities and community gatherings. However, it is accessed by a steep flight of steps, making it inaccessible or challenging for young parents with pushchairs and anyone with mobility issues.

 

Project details

The funding will be used to create a low carbon, two storey extension to the front of the building. This includes a disabled parking and drop off point, ramp, accessible toilets, changings rooms and bar. During the Covid-19 pandemic it became clear to Lambeage Hall the importance of communities coming together and the damage to mental health caused by social isolation. This project will enable all the community to attend events and also to extend the range of activities on offer. The extension will provide the opportunity to celebrate the centenary of the hall, making it fit for purpose for the next 100 years and able to serve the whole community. It will be available for hire for events and celebrations, promoting local providers and produce.

Lambeage Hall will be able to offer a much increased range of activities – covering, health, education and culture – an accessible place to come together and have fun.
