Our project to make the hall accessible to everyone started at the beginning of August 2020.  Work is taking place to put in a lift to all floors, create a new welcoming entrance on the Burton Road side of the hall, put in new accessible toilets and add a new room to the ground floor. It’s a really exciting time and we hope the works will be complete by late April 2021.

March 2021 Update
The Nest Pre School moved into their upgraded spaces in January. Children are enjoying the new garden room and improved outside space. Most of the rest of the work is complete and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the hall via our new entrance very soon.
