Nocton Village Hall - funding

Grant Aid

As I am sure you are well aware, the Parish Council is engaged in the planning process for a new village hall, made necessary by the structural faults evident in the current village hall and the obligation, under covenant, to maintain a viable village hall on the site so generously donated by British Field Products Ltd in 1981.

One of the main aims of the project is to minimise the proportion of the costs that will be covered by a Public Works Loan, thus reducing the overall cost to the village population.

To enable us to do this we need to maximise the amount which can be obtained in grants from the multitude of charities and other organisations that are prepared to fund this sort of project.

All potential donors require us to demonstrate support for the project within the village. To that end could you please show your support by writing a sentence or two about what you are looking forward to in a new village hall.

It is important to for us to emphasise that by doing this you are supporting in principal the concept of a new village hall as the most cost effective way of dealing with the problems of the old one. You are not committing yourself or agreeing to any particular course of action or indeed to any actual expenditure.

Once funding efforts are complete and full costs are calculated your Parish Council will present to you a viable, affordable plan.

Please either write or email a couple of sentences of support to the Parish Clerk at:
  • Mr Stephen Aldridge, Nocton Parish Clerk, Banks Lodge, Lincoln Road, Dunston, Lincoln LN4 2EX. Email: noctonparishcouncil@hotmail.co.uk .
  • Leave your letter of support at the Village Post Office.
We are almost ready to start the application process so an early response is vital and would be much appreciated. Your support matters, numbers will count!
