Meppershall Village Hall and Community Facilities Development
In a joint project between Meppershall Village Hall Charity, Meppershall Parish Council and Croudace Homes Ltd a new Village Hall is being constructed behind the existing hall.
The new building will a have custom designed Pre-School room and play area with extended opening hours. A larger and lighter Social Club area with a bar, with an adjoining games / meeting room. The new hall, complete with stage and theatre lighting is large enough to accommodate Carpet Bowls, Tea Dances, Bingo, Disco's, Plays, Pantomimes and Private Functions. The hall is also served by a Function Bar and Catering Kitchen. Attached to the hall is a Sport England compliant Changing Room with separate changing and showers for Home and Away Teams and a Referee. This facility can also be used for indoor sports or theatre productions.
Outside the Community Facilities provide full size and junior football pitches together with a cricket square. A new small children's enclosed play area is being installed near the social club and existing MUGA. The young persons play equipment is being refreshed and relocated. On the North East side is an area set aside as a non-denominational cemetery.
On the western side of the public footpath there will be housing development of 78 homes which will include 12 new affordable homes and a range of 2 to 5 bedroom properties.
The new hall will open in Spring/Summer 2019. This will be followed by the Sports Pitches which require additional time for the grass to grow. During the construction phase there will be a temporary hall which can still accommodate the Pre-School, Social Club, Meppershall Players and other hall users.
