Campaigners in Congresbury have launched an innovative way for people to donate money towards a new community hall.

The Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust’s spring penny savings challenge encourages villagers to save their pennies through February and March for the new hall project.

A Trust spokesman said: “More than 700 Congresbury residents voted in favour of the new village hall plans in September and the project team are looking to this initiative as a barometer for actual engagement and commitment from villagers.”
