Council helps fund new community hall kitchen

A 2,000 grant looks set to be awarded by West Oxfordshire District Council towards improvements at Long Hanborough Recreation Hall.

The Council's Cabinet has recommended that Hanborough Community Association receives the funding to help with a project to extend the hall to provide a new kitchen, meeting room and storage space.

Hanborough Community Association treasurer Lynne Ashton said members were extremely pleased their application for a Village and Community Halls Minor Schemes Grant had been successful.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "The hall plays an important role in the community and we are glad to help with this project, which will be of great benefit to users."

The Association needs to raise about 41,000 in total for the project and is applying to other funding bodies for grants. It hopes building work will start in January 2007.

As well as the District Council, it has received funding from other organisations, including: 10,000 from the Trust for Oxfordshire's Environment; 7,924.48 from DEFRA; 5,000 from Awards for All; 2,500 from Oxfordshire County Council; 2,000 from Hanborough Parish Council and 1,000 from the Doris Field Charitable Trust.
