Can you support our Village Halls?

Help from CCB’s specialist Village Halls Advisor can help community groups or management committees ensure that their village hall plays a central role in the life of the rural community. Advice on accessing grants for essential improvements such as disabled access, safety and security can ensure the long term future of your village hall.

With the help of CCB, Great Shefford in West Berkshire raised over £40,000 to build a new kitchen, storeroom and toilets. The funding included a grant of £33,000 from the Community Fund and two of over £7000 from Awards for All. The hall is used by local groups and societies and as such plays a vital role in the life of the village.
