The Village Hall
The new roof and paths around the Village Hall are now complete. At the same time we have replaced all the guttering and soffits along with adding 3 rows of solar panels on the south side of the building which are now feeding back into the National Grid. With adding over building spec. insulation in the roof, this has helped reduce our energy costs.
The whole project required us to raise over £150,000, but now the building is both weather tight and ready for our next set of upgrades. This will include:
1.Remove false ceiling, repaint. Install LED lighting above and along walls
2,Battery for solar panels
3.New updated radiators
4.Insulate 2 loggias and repair and repaint outside woodwork with lockable noticeboards
5.Create table and chair storage area on left of entrance allowing us to remount the Titchfield Tapestries on the rear wall of the stage
6.New laminate floor.
7.New lockable kitchen cupboards and worksurfaces
8.Sound System with Hearing Loop, new Projection Screen
9.New Tables & Chairs
We are estimating costs in the region of £60,000 but once all of this has been achieved the hall will be fit for purpose for at least the next 50 years.
We also aim to create a ‘Coffee Room’ in the current committee room and re-decorate the hall
Our time scale depends on raising the funds required and at the moment we are a third of the way to achieving that.

Many of you have made comments on the improved access the new path across the Barry’s Meadow has provided. The Earl of Southampton Trust (EoS Trust) are to be congratulated on providing a much-used facility.
As a result the Village Trust and the EoS Trust have joined forces to continue improving the meadow by removing the brambles on the left hand side, as you look from the bottom, and replacing them with a copse of native trees.
