Work begins on the Extension and Alterations to Calvert Green Village Hall

Building work is now underway to create new and improved Village Hall facilities for the whole Community following a Turf Cutting Ceremony.

AJ Design & Build of Northants have been appointed as Main Contractor to deliver the works, and the Village Hall is now closed, as the Project gets underway.

The Project which is being part funded by a generous £50,000 grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund will provide fit-out of the extension including a Bar, Kitchen and WC facilities once it is opened later this Summer.

A grant of £200,000 has also been obtained from AVDC’s New Homes Bonus, without which the Hall Development works could not have proceeded, providing necessary funds to deliver a fabulous new facility to meet the Community needs now and in the future.

Cllr Marie Swan of Calvert Green Parish Council is excited that the project is starting to take shape. She says ‘It is great to see our vision for this vital community facility moving closer to reality. We are extremely grateful for the funding WREN and NHB have given us and we’re looking forward to opening to the Community later this Year.’

Joe Newby, WREN Grant Manager for Buckinghamshire, said “Good quality facilities, which are accessible to all, are vital for community well-being. This project will look to provide a fully updated facility where people of all ages can come together and take part in a range of activities. We are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile project and are really looking forward to the outcome”.

WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund. Since 1998, WREN has granted over £200m to more than 7,000 projects which benefit people living within 10 miles of a FCC Environment landfill site. For more information please visit www.wren.org.uk
