Our ideas for a 21st century venue

We have consulted with users of the centre for their ideas on how we can improve the facilities, as well as visiting other centres to get inspiration. We also held an open evening to hear what the people of Coxhoe want from their village hall. Some of the improvements we’re working on are:

  • “New to U” shop
  • Meeting room with full IT facilities.
  • A “Friends of the Village Hall” group.
  • More activities and facilities for our young people.
  • Provide a venue for music and drama events.
  • Provide a venue for hire – weddings, funerals, parties, etc.
  • Create a shared office space for a part-time manager and Parish Clerk.
  • Take into account facilities and activities provided by the Active Life Centre.
  • A “Book Swop” facility – to compensate for the lack of a village library.
  • IT Resource Centre – developed in partnership with the centre in Shotton.
  • Exterior notice boards.
  • Crafts and arts.
  • Photographic displays.
  • Display centre for the Coxhoe Local History Group.
  • Provide educational courses.
