A VILLAGE hall will get an overhaul worth more than £8,000 thanks to the Big Lottery Fund.

The facility in Cleeve will receive £8,227 from the organisation to refurbish the building with new men's toilets, flooring and windows and to update the electrical wiring and sockets and replace damaged floorboards.

The work will be designed to make the village hall in Cleeve Hill Road more accessible and better able to deliver activities and services to the community.

It is one of only 39 projects in the South West to share a pot of £304,951.

Mark Cotton, the head of the Big Lottery Fund for the South West, said: "It's wonderful to see so many groups benefitting from more than £300,000 in grants this month.

"From breathing new life into outdoor areas to teaching the skills of beekeeping, each project is contributing to our society in a remarkable way and we are proud to be able to support them.

"Now is a great time to apply for funding for not only environmental projects, but a whole range of ideas.

"I look forward to seeing more interesting projects throughout the year."

The Awards for All programme was launched last April and will give £45million to group and organisations.
