St Wilfrid’s Church Hall Committee is pleased to announce that they have been successful in obtaining a grant from The National Lottery Awards For All.

This provides funding to pay for some much needed maintenance and modernisation to the Church Hall. Further grants have been applied for and then a programme of work can be started, which includes refurbished toilets to provide full disabled access and facilities, and a new insulated ceiling. Hopefully work can also be done to the front entrance way.

The Hall and Church building celebrate 50 years this year and so this news is timely. The hall is managed by members of the Church community, local residents and members of Pevensey Parish Council; a total of 9 people.They are continuing the work that has been undertaken by many local people on a voluntary basis over the last 50 years to ensure that this popular facility can be used by individuals and local groups, many of whom have done so for more than 25 years. One of the Committee, Chris Pollard recently stood down after 40 years service on the Committee, most of which as the Secretary.

Rev Tony Windross who is Chairman of the Committee said “ The news that grants are available for village community facilities is invaluable as this helps to keep costs down for users. To keep facilities maintained and modernised is costly and after 50 years much needs to be done to the Church hall. With the introduction of a website and modernisation to the building we hope that the facility will continue to be used actively for the next 50 years”
