Brockham Community Hall Project - can you or your organisation help?
Good news ! Work has now started on the
extension and refurbishment of the Church Community Hall and the
project is on programme for the new hall to open at the beginning
The planning permission allows us to
build an extension to the side of the hall, which will form the new
entrance and will provide a disabled access ramp to be constructed
to comply with current regulations. Internally, the layout will be
reconfigured to provide a new disabled toilet and an enlarged
kitchen. If funds allow, the plans will also include refurbishment
of the main hall and cosmetic changes externally to both improve
the appearance and upgrade the levels of insulation. Please see the
link below for a detailed plan:

We are aiming to raise £50,000 to enable
us to complete the whole project this year - the result will be a
fantastic facility for the whole village from the very young to the
very old, whether at Brockham Green nursery, Monday cafe, the
uniformed organisations, and of course Teas on the Green.
With your help, we can create a venue which will benefit the
whole community - there are 3 ways you can assist: 1. make a one
off donation 2. sign up to regular giving for a 3 year period
or 3. purchase one of the items of equipment on our shopping list
Tower fridge - £400 Baby Changing Unit -
£350 Hand washing sink - £150 Commercial
dishwasher - £2,500
Tall cupboards for storage - £300 each Tables and
chairs - figuress to be confirmed
No matter how small your contribution, it will help enormously
and we would be very grateful. We are planning to display a 'board
of thanks' in the new hall.
Help make a difference in your community!

the years, the external stonework has continued to erode and is now
in need of urgent repair.
Fundraising Appeal was launched to enlist the financial
support of the community, including local and national businesses
and charities, to raise £80,000 towards the cost of the restoration
project which is currently estimated to be £100,000.
funds were raised to allow the work to go ahead and a total of
£82,000 was spent on the restoration and cleaning of the stonework.
The essential work to the external fabric of the building has now
been completed and the church is looking superb.
this will be an ongoing project as the remaining areas of exposed
Reigate stone will continue to weather, but a fund has been setup
to set aside money for future repairs. The majority of the high
level work has now been completed and it is therefore hoped that
future repairs will be more accessible, which will help to keep the
