The refurbishment programme has begun to alter a disused church in Sandleheath.

Builders are cracking on with the work to transform the former St Aldhelm's Church into a new village hall.

New toilets, a new kitchen area and repairs to the building's structure are all being carried out to create something the 'Sandleheath Village Hall' website describes as a "village facility which we can all be proud of".

Transformation work began in January at the former St Aldhelm's Church- Sandleheath Village Hall is set to open in May.

The building work is currently in two phases:

  • PHASE 1:  The renewal of our toilet/kitchen block. Funds were raised during 2019 and the contractors, PWH Building, started work on the project in January 2020.  The cost of Phase 1 is £58,800, which was already raised last year.
  • PHASE 2:  The remainder of the hall. This includes full wall, roof and window insulation, interior and exterior cleaning and sealing, and replacement of the entire electrical system. Fundraising for this phase is now well in hand

TIMELINE FOR THE WORKS

Refurbishment work began in earnest on January 20th, 2020.

It's hoped the new facilities will be ready to officially open by May 2020.
