Refurbishment of St Mabyn Peace Memorial Hall

Refurbishment of St Mabyn Peace Memorial Hall

Lead Organisation: St Mabyn Peace Memorial Hall

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded: £2500.00

Location: St Mabyn

St. Mabyn Peace Memorial Hall, located in North Cornwall, has been a significant part of the community for the past 100 years. It has hosted various events, ranging from gardening clubs to dances and even a doctor’s surgery. Currently, the hall is used by over 18 groups and plays a crucial role in combating social isolation within the community by providing access to facilities, helping to build new friendships and maintain existing ones.

There is a vision to transform the hall into one of the most sustainable Village Halls in North Cornwall, positioning it as a central hub for the wider community and ensuring its continuous enjoyment by the residents of St. Mabyn and the local community.

The Community Capacity Fund has been used to engage the services of an architect who will prepare design plans for the refurbishment of the hall. The plans include several key additions and improvements to the hall, including a new kitchen, upgraded toilets, insulation, solar panels, a veranda/conservatory, balcony, and an EV charging point.

Upon completion the plans will serve as a foundation for Quantity Surveyor Costings, phasing of the project, identifying benefits for the community and seeking input from the Parish through consultation. This comprehensive approach ensures that every aspect of the renovation project is carefully considered to benefit the local community in the best way.

The planned additions would enable the provision of more services and activities, attracting a broader range of individuals. By bringing people and groups together in an affordable and welcoming local venue, the hall will contribute to a stronger sense of community. Additionally, the installation of renewable energy sources, improved insulation, and roofing will not only reduce running costs but also decrease the hall’s carbon footprint. By keeping expenses low and embracing renewable energy sources, the hall will not only ensure its own sustainability but also contribute to the overall resilience of local services and assets.
