‘Tired’ vil­lage hall to get a £2k facelift

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Family Tragedy -

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.”
