Villagers hoping to build a community hall have pledged more than £100,000, as the project edges closer to materialising.
Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust hopes to create a mixed-use facility at the King George V Playing Field, in Stonewell Drive, which would be used by the village’s community groups and sports teams.
A £250,000 fundraising target has been set by the trust, and since the end of June more than 100 villagers have committed cash through community share and buy-a-brick schemes to the tune of £111,275.
The deadline to pledge has been extended until the end of September, and the trust has called for support.
A trust spokesman said: “Some 127 pledges have been received so there are well over 2,000 other people in the village who could pledge.”
