Rene Milton Hall Accessibility Project

Project Summary

In December 2022 we gained planning permission to proceed with our accessibility project. 

Our purpose built hall was opened in 1951 and is in desperate need of modernising and adapting to improve its facilities and entrance. The completed project will result in adding an extension and refurbishment to offer step free access with a low gradient ramp, accessible and enhanced toilet facilities within the hall and a consultation/treatment room. The existing access for the hall is not conducive to the safety, comfort and well-being of our current, or future membership, and is being highly anticipated by everyone for its completion.  Please see the plans below.

At an estimated total cost of £250,000, we need support from our community.

Fundraising

We have been busy fundraising to pay the costs of the project and in October held a highly enjoyable and successful dinner with auction at Shendish Manor Hotel. During the evening we raised an amazing £12,300! Thank you to everyone who supported us at this event.

Other fundraising events have included sales, raffles, open days and coffee mornings within our local community. Further, in spring 2024 we will be holding a quiz night among other activities so do look out on our social media and this page for more details.  

If you would like to hold a fundraising event yourself on our behalf or attend one of the events we hold please contact us using the contact page.
