Mawgan-in-Meneage Recreation Hall is a vital community asset that has been serving Mawgan and its surrounding communities on the Lizard peninsula for over 40 years. The Hall is very dated and in need of modernisation, not only to the decoration but also modern technology.

Currently the Hall can only accommodate a maximum of 60 people, meaning community events are limited and organisations and groups go further afield to host their important private and community events for this reason. The Hall is no longer able to meet the needs of the community due to this.

The community have been formally engaged regarding the Hall and renovation plans have been created which reflect their needs. These plans include expanding the space, by building two extensions, an events patio and increasing the number of female toilets. This will create a more usable space to encourage new activities in this rural community and also improve accessibility of the toilet facilities, including providing an externally accessible toilet.

They will also use the Community Levelling Up funding to bring the Hall to a modern standard with technology by installing Wi-Fi and purchasing a projector, which will allow them to provide an internet connection for business meetings, screenings, educational sessions, and guest talks. The refurbishments and installation of the projector will encourage new members of the community and surrounding areas to use the hall. The hall will be a more modern facility and better equipped to meet the community’s needs.

The project will have a positive impact on the whole community, by modernising and expanding a much-loved but increasingly impractical and dated space, the building will be more accessible and fit for purpose which will in turn support and enable community engagement and cohesion.
