Hall Improvements

The Hall can now offer a toilet for the disabled and a new small meeting room (12 people) thanks to financial support provided by the Lancashire Environmental Fund. Their contribution enabled the Hall to make the modifications to a former disused bar area and also to insulate the ceiling and walls to a high standard. A modern central heating boiler with a seven-day timer in the Annexe plus stage and window curtains to the main room were also installed as part of the project.

The Lancashire Environmental Fund (LEF) is a partnership between SITA UK Ltd., Lancashire County Council, The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside and Community Futures. The fund is financed by Landfill Tax donations from SITA UK Ltd and Neales Waste Management together with a contribution from Lancashire County Council.
Organisations can apply for funding for environmental and community initiatives which benefit the environment and people of Lancashire. Projects to date have included improvements to community facilities, environmental education, general environmental improvements, creation and management of habitats, improvements to parks, gardens, open spaces, play areas, recreational facilities, ponds, canals and rivers and biodiversity.
