The Parish Hall - Registered Charity No: 1016238
 
Ashwater Parish Hall was opened in March 2010 by Cllr Barry Parsons.  The hall replaced the previous one that had been in constant use since 1929 and had reached its expiry date.
 
The people of Ashwater donated and raised funds which together with grants from a variety of sources including the Big Lottery Fund enabled the building to be erected on a site donated for the purpose by the late Jack Moon.
 
The hall was an immediate success with use exceeding all projections and expectations.  It was soon obvious to the Trustees that an extension would be required especially as the kitchen was enlarged by use of a small meeting room within a short space of time.
 
Consequently plans have been drawn up and passed for an annexe to be built, which will permit stand alone use as well as assist with much needed storage space.
 
The business plan has now been adopted and targets set to achieve the necessary funds of circa £75,000 to enable building to be commenced. To see the business plan please click here: Hall_Annexe_Business_Plan_ver1.pdf
 
Fund raising is now a necessity and a number of events will be held as well as possible grant sources explored.  We have raised or been pledged over £39,000 to date (October  2017), which means we are over halfway there!
 
We are grateful to Torridge District Council as they have granted £25,000 towards the extension project.
 
If you would like to make a small donation, arrange a fund raising event or simply put forward some ideas please contact the Hall Secretary: Ivan Buxton  - Tel: 01409 221073  Email: ibuxton16@btinternet.com
