Improvements Updates

Planning Permission has now been approved for the Village Hall alterations and extensions, which is very good news.

The Village hall has today been awarded a Grant of £5,000 from the Bernard Sunley Foundation, so together with other donations we now have a total of £33,871.00p towards the Refurbishment program.

Today we have been able to fill the thermometer up a little bit more.

To date we have applied for Grants from: the SDNP, the Bernard Sunley Foundation, the Big Lottery, the Coop, Tesco’s and a Government funding scheme, we are also about to apply for grants from Chichester District Council, and also for or a share of some CIL money from West Sussex County Council.

We also have the offer of financial help, from some local businesses. Any further offers would be great!

We have lots of brilliant fund raising events being organised for the future, including our Musical Performance of ‘Separate Ways’, on the 16th August (See below and please contact Jane if you would like tickets), so please continue to support us.

The Trustees and I are beginning to feel quite excited about the future improvements to our much loved village hall, as the proposed improvements become a huge step closer to becoming a reality.

Separate Ways – Preview before it moves to London!

This is a really ‘one-off’ and a real scoop for the village hall, a pre London preview of an amazing musical cabaret. We will also have a paying bar to make the evening perfect. For tickets you can either contact Jane by email at, or leave a message on the Village Hall bookings page at!
