Thanks to a grant of over £50,000 from Biffa Award, Boston Spa’s village hall has undergone a transformation.
The tired and dated main foyer and toilets have been totally refurbished. The foyer is now spacious and welcoming and the toilets have been modernised and now include baby changing facilities. The accessible toilet also benefits from updated facilities. We cannot wait to have an official opening and show our lovely community of users, when Government guidelines allow.
Carol Taylor, Chair Boston Spa Village Hall Management Committee:
“The Hall is at the heart of the Boston Spa community and has been in existence since the early 1900s” said C. “Due to budget limitations, the facilities had not been updated for some time, so we are really grateful to Biffa Award for their generous grant. We’re looking forward to welcoming our community back in due course.”
Terry Gaussen, Parish Councillor and local resident:
As a long time village hall user it has been really gratifying to see the completed alterations and renovations to the foyer and toilet facilities. The previously cramped main entrance to the Hall and cafe is now transformed into welcomingly open area which forms a useable extra congregating space, with the added bonus of full wheelchair
“The renewal of the old, dated female and male lavatories, was very necessary and the new layout, fixtures, fittings and decoration is so much better for all hall users, for ease of use and hygiene. The modernisation of the Accessible facilities together with ambulant, baby changing and similar provision was also much needed. So, it is great to see these improvements which are a credit to the Village Hall and will stand it in good stead in future years.”
Rachel Maidment, Biffa Award Grants Manager:
“At Biffa Award we are proud to support projects which are so integral to the life of their community, bringing people together and giving them the opportunity to share experiences. Projects like this provide the means for a community to thrive.”
