An estate agent in North Somerset has given its support to plans to build a new village hall in Congresbury.

The Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust is raising money to build a new hall in the King George V Playing Fields, off Stonewell Drive. It hopes to complete the project by the end of 2019.

The Trust’s work has been given a boost after Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, which has a branch in nearby Wrington, announced it would donate 10 per cent of any fees it receives from the sale or rental of Congresbury homes this year to the organisation.

The Trust’s fundraising lead Ron Hall said: “This super new amenity will be for the benefit of all our villagers, and will combine community facilities with leisure, sport and recreation.

“We are very grateful to Debbie and her team for their help.”

Debbie Fortune herself added: “The villagers who sell or rent through us can also feel that they are involved in the project and are contributing to a really worthwhile village cause.”
