Report from the Trustees of Meppershall Village Hall November 2018

Opening Soon!

Your new Village Hall should be opening in time for Christmas and the New Year celebrations. Please look out for more information on the Meppershall Village Hall website and Facebook.
The final phase of commissioning gas, water, electrical and heating services is under way. David Sawford, our surveyor from Robinson & Hall is undertaking detailed inspections of every part of the inside and outside or the building prior to sign off and handover.
The last few weeks have been a very busy time for the Trustees co-ordinating fit out specifications and tendering, ordering and supply of new equipment, tables, chairs, furnishings and final format of the bars and café.  Alongside that dealing with lawyers as regards the transfer of the freehold with rights of safe access for Croudace to remove the Interim MVH and complete the maintenance works to the newly seeded sports pitches.  In early December training courses will be held on the use of new technology in the New MVH for heating and ventilation as well as electrical installations, including CCTV.  Much activity will continue beyond the New MVH opening time and onwards to when new outside Play Equipment is installed, and the sports pitches mature for handover in late 2019.  A lot has been achieved.
Photographs of the building during various stages of construction can be viewed using the menus or which are updated on a regular basis.
We expect the Bar area to be open on or before the 21st December and there are a number of events planned for over the Christmas period.
Meppershall Pre-School will be transferring to the new hall during the Christmas break ready to open in the New Year. The Walnut Tree Cafe should be opening in January.
