Newly Refurbished Hall and Kitchen
Our Community hall and kitchen known locally as “The schoolrooms” are undergoing restoration and when complete will have a catering kitchen, new bathroom facilities and disabled access.
Part of the plan is to create a community CATERING KITCHEN for ALL THE COMMUNITY TO USE and the plan is to provide a regular “meals on wheels” style delivery locally in partnership with the organisation “Cotswold Friends” who a have already offered to help by training all volunteers willing, to obtain a food hygiene certificate, we will also be continuing with the popular pop up lunches and will be able to cater for village events and celebrations from this facility. You are possibly thinking as we do “What a shame it wasn't there before this Covid 19 outbreak” how useful would a catering kitchen for the community to use have been at this time.
The wonderful people who have been cooking Weekday and Sunday lunches and cakes for the elderly in the village during this pandemic are doing a fantastic job from their homes but our hope is that once a new facility is in place we could have two or three “Teams” of volunteers to work on a rota and provide a similar service regularly and into the future.
These building plans have taken three years to get to the point we are at today but hopefully, when we can resume normal life, they will go ahead at speed (grant funding pending) and help us continue to show our love to one another whether in service or being served.
We thank you Lord for the opportunity to serve one another. May we see you in them, and may they see you in us. Amen
The newly renovated hall will accommodate up to 80 people for functions and is available for hire.
