Community Led Redevelopment

The Church Hall was built in 1968 and since then has served the parish and the local community well; hosting Church events, musical performances, theatrical productions, political meetings and much more, as well as a wide range of social events and private functions.

Pearce Bottomley have been working with the Parochial Church Council (PCC) since for the improvement of the church hall; making it more flexible and better able to serve the community.

The redevelopment work took the things people said they loved about the Hall and built upon them, whilst dramatically improving things people told us they think could be better.

Improving accessibility and community use have been central to the design of the church hall with a new toilet block featuring single-occupancy cubicles which improve privacy and increase capacity, and include a new accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.

A renovation of the room which was the office has now created a space for meetings, training, group sessions and more.

At the entrance to the Hall a new disabled access ramp meets modern standards for accessibility, making it easier to get wheelchairs and pushchairs into the building, and a refresh of the lobby area gives a great space for greeting people with a new hanging mural completed by members of the community.
