‘Tired’ village hall to get a £2k facelift
The village hall at Rough Common is set to benefit from a £2,000 improvement package.
The cash was approved at a recent meeting of the rural area member panel of Canterbury City Council.
It agreed to give the management committee for both the village hall and playing fields, the cash to fix the building’s walls and to prime, seal and paint its walls and woodwork.
Cllr Amy Baker, who is a member of the panel and chairman of the management committee, said: “We want to make the hall a social hub for the village and make it a more inviting place to spend time. It is looking very tired and the paintwork is chipped and peeling off the walls.
“There is a huge amount of work to be done like installing some new heating and upgrading the kitchen, so we need all the help we can get to raise funds.
“The committee is delighted to have been awarded £2,000 by the city council and we hope our residents support us to make it a central part of the community.”
