Troon village hall is a beloved and important resource in the centre of Troon, a large village set in the rural, mining landscape, South-East of Camborne, some 560 feet above sea level.  The hall, Mission church and house were built 1899.

The hall is run on a not for profit basis, for the enjoyment of the local community, it has a large rental space with stage at one end, kitchen and WCS.  Presently the hall has a draught and is a hard to heat space, it needs help to provide the tech and facilities modern living demands.

The Troon village hall project will build a smaller second rental space or extension, alongside insulating the existing hall, including lowered ceiling, insulated floor and secondary glazing.  The hall will be accessed via a ramp, ensuring the whole community can take advantage of the new facilities.  These will include an accessible and enlarged kitchen, three separate WCs and a small community orchard and garden.  The stage in the original hall will be rebuilt and improved and there will be stage lighting and AV equipment to allow theatrical groups, performers, live music and screening of films and talks, bringing essential life experiences to the heart of the village.  The Hall will also have broadband fitted, to encourage youth groups, job seekers and clinics to use the space.  The improved hall will also enjoy renewable heating and energy to offset costs and carbon footprint.

Troon Village Hall have enjoyed consulting with their community and spending time hearing what Troon really wants from their village hall.  ‘Crafternoon’ has already started but Troon residents want to see youth activities, fitness for all ages, film clubs and live entertainment and the Village Hall are looking forward to working with residents and delivering this and more.
