We have received confirmation that our two grant requests so far have resulted in support of £5000 each. So we need another £15,000 to reach our £50K target for the roof work.
The two grants are from Garfield Weston and The Foyle Foundations, to whom we give our thanks.
The Reading Room needs you to show your support by buying one (or more) tiles !
So far over £300 has been contributed to this scheme.
We are inviting residents to demonstrate their support for the continued availability of a village hall in Corsley for the future by buying some tiles for the new roof project.
This demonstration of your support may be a crucial factor in us getting the grants we are seeking to refurbish the roof and undertake other improvements required to maintain the hall for the future.
Please make donations £5 or multiples thereof. Some options are available via buttons but any amount can be entered.
The easiest way to do this is via our JustGiving link. You can pay by BACS, Credit/Debit Card, PayPal etc. Every penny you donate will come to us. There is no transaction fee.**
This is a special page and not the same as you will find by searching JustGiving
** Please note as well as entering any amount to give us, you will be given the option to make a donation to JustGiving to cover their costs. This is an option and can be set at ZERO although a suggested donation is their default in the application.
If anyone wants to make a larger contribution to the project than the JustGiving options then please contact Hugh Deed, Vanessa Hyde or any trustee!
All funds collected via this JustGiving facility will be ring fenced for maintenance of the building.
Late 2022 photo "competition".
Full details of the next opportunity will be available soon. But please be aware that all submissions of Summer 2022 pictures must have a dimension along the longest side of at least 3500 pixels.

Update re COVID (26th Feb 2022)
It is the hirer's responsibility to ensure that their use of the hall complies with whatever government rules are in place for England/UK.
For clarity under the regulations Village Halls are treated a public buildings when used for other than private hire.
In line with the NHS Test and Trace instructions all COVID QR codes have been removed and all covid signs taken down.
Hand sanitisers remain in place and available for use as users see fit.
Updates about the refurbishment programme will be added when we know the outcome of our grant applications.
