Lambeage Hall, situated on a picturesque coastal plot overlooking Perprean Cove in Coverack, was originally built as a place of respite for the British Legion, it has evolved over the years into a vital community venue. Serving the remote area of Coverack and its surrounding hamlets, Lambeage Hall has become the heart of the community, hosting a wide range of events and activities. From live music and theatre performances to film nights and art-based activities, the hall is a hub of cultural and social gatherings. It also provides a space for local clubs, village events, and community celebrations.
Unfortunately, accessibility to the hall is currently limited. A steep flight of steps poses a challenge for many community members and makes it impossible for individuals in wheelchairs or with pushchairs to enter.
Recognizing this issue, the final project aims to address the accessibility concerns and improve the facilities. A proposed 2-storey extension will be constructed, which will include disabled parking spaces, a short ramp for easy entry, and an improved entrance with accessible toilets.
To bring the project a step closer to completion, the Community Capacity Fund grant will be used to cover the costs of appointing an architect who will play a crucial role in the development of the wider project. The architect will be responsible for undertaking technical design works, creating working drawings, specifications, and tender documents. These documents are essential in securing funding for the wider project and ensuring its successful implementation.
The extension of Lambeage Hall and the improvements in accessibility will greatly benefit the remote rural village of Coverack. By expanding the hall and increasing the range of services offered, the local community will be better served, levelling them up with other communities across the county.
