New lease of life at Eastrington Village Hall thanks to grant
03 September 2013

A villge hall in Eastrington, East Yorkshire, is set to benefit from a £5,197 grant from Biffa Award, a multi-million pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives through awarding grants to community and environmental projects across the UK.

The floor repair and varnish project at Eastrington Village Hall, which was awarded funding under Biffa Award’s Community Buildings theme, will repair and varnish the floor of the hall.

The works will include the racking out and filling of the damaged sections of the floor and where necessary damaged blocks will be replaced.  The repaired floor will then be machine sanded and have three coats of polyurethane seal applied.

Caroline Scargill, Treasurer, Eastrington Village Hall Association, said:

“The grant from Biffa Award has made it possible to repair the floor and bring it back to its former glory. The new floor will attract more weddings and other parties to the hall.”

Doreen Wilson, Representative from Mums and Tots Group, said:

“Once the floor has been completed it will make the hall look like new and will be a safe environment for the children.”

Gillian French, Biffa Award Programme Manager, said:

“This project will greatly improve the flooring in the hall, creating a safe and welcoming space and we are proud to support it.”
