PCA received planning approval in January 2020 for the extension and refurbishment of Little Hadham Village Hall. The proposed development will create a new community hub whilst also renovating the existing building and improving its energy efficiency. The new facilities will comprise of an internet cafe, multi-purpose meeting rooms, gallery space and perhaps a community shop.
Despite its current condition the village hall continues to provide vital local services such as the part time doctor’s surgery and post office as well as hosting many community groups including a farmer’s market, indoor bowling, brownies and the ever-popular annual pantomime!
The proposals, which are the product of extensive community consultation, seek to develop this popular and valued asset to provide a thriving, sustainable facility for local residents who are enthusiastic to see its continuation.
Of course, now that planning approval has been secured, the hard work of grant applications, fundraising and sponsorship begins in earnest.
