Building Work at West Hallam Village Hall…continued

The refurbishment of the rear roof of the main hall and some of parts of the attached roofs has been completed. As have the rainwater drainage gulleys and French drains at the front of the Hall.

Work has also been carried out in the rear hall with the screen being removed, additional heating installed and a door from the new extension provided to give separate access.

In March the wooden main frame for the extension arrived, along with the new window for the existing toilets. These had been installed by the end of March allowing construction of the disabled toilet and baby changing area to begin.

From the middle of April, Andrew Churchman, a specialist stone mason, has been carrying out work to repair the gable and the stone mullions of the window adjacent to the front entrance to the Hall.

Building Work At West Hallam Village Hall Update June 2019

Work on the extension to the Village Hall has continued to make good progress.

A new storage room has been built at the inner end of the rear hall, this has allowed light from the end window, previously reduced by the partition, to flood in. These changes have given the rear hall a whole new character, giving a light, spacious area for user groups to use – a most welcome addition to the Village Hall.

The entrance area now has its keypad operated doors giving easy access to the building. Along with numerous other smaller changes to improve access, the disabled toilet and baby change facilities are being installed.

In the main hall, Velux windows have been fitted in the roof replacing the old dormer window.

Outside, a new path has been laid from the double gates at the side of the Hall, linking up with the paved area at the rear of the Hall to give good level access.

At the time of writing, Andrew Churchman, the stone mason, has now replaced the mullion in the front window. He is currently installing two new sections of stone lintel above the window, following which, he will rebuild the brick face of the gable tying it into the gable roof – the “leaning gable” will be no more!
