What a difference!

The Hall at St Godwald’s has just undergone a major refurbishment and is now open for business again. Thanks to generous local donations, help from the Friends of St Godwald and a £50,000 grant from Biffaward, there is now a fully equipped kitchen, brand new toilets including facilities for the disabled. A lot has also been done in the background, with a totally new electrical system and replacement of rotten flooring in the small meeting room (the Ruth Heald Room). Improved insulation should reduce the carbon footprint of the complex.

Commenting on the new main Hall, with its ceiling restored to the original vaulted design, the Rev’d Christine Holzapfel said, “what a difference, this is now a really great space for all sorts of events.”

Churchwarden Tony Moxon commented that,’the Hall has served the local community for over 100 years. This major refurbishment is the springboard for another 100 years!’

Biffaward is managed by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts and makes grants, from Landfill Tax, for projects which help build communities or transform lives.

Tony said,”they have certainly transformed our Hall and without this grant we would not have been able to contemplate this improvement.”

The contract was undertaken by Speller Metcalfe who completed the task in only 6 weeks.
