Committee’s hopes for new village hall in Ropsley

Have your say

Ropsley will be home to a new village hall if plans by the village hall committee are successful.

The committee has identified the need to replace the existing village hall which is reaching the end of its serviceable life and no longer meets the needs of a 21st century building.

Two years ago, members submitted a bid to the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Building Fund, which was unsuccessful. The advice from the Big Lottery was that, as a group, they need to undertake further consultation and involvement with the community which will ultimately be beneficiaries of the new hall.

Funding for community projects such as that is very competitive but the committee is determined to pursue its vision of providing a new village hall.

Consequently a survey is being distributed to all households in Ropsley, Sapperton, Braceby, Great and Little Humby, and users of the hall. This is designed to establish what they would like to see from the new Ropsley Village Hall.

The survey will be distributed over the weekend of April 26-27 and collected from Saturday, May 10. It can, alternatively, be completed online.

Anyone completing the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win cash prizes of £50, £30 or £10.
