PROPOSED NEW HALL

The current hall, a temporary building, until a nerw purpose-built hall could be built after over 60 years has now reached the end of its life and the committee are no longer able to receive funding for its improvemnet as the hall is structurally compromised. The hall committee decided to start drawing up plans to replace the existing hall. Copies of full-sized concept drawings can be found in the hall.

Click here to view the current concept drawings. 

In December 2019, after the hall has raised sufficient funding, an archaeological survey was undertaken to see if it was possible to build the new hall to the front of the existing hall. See photograph of one of the trenches below. Luckily no archaeological finds were discovered so the next stage of the new hall building can proceed, which will be draw up building plans that can be submitted to Carlisle City Council, get costing drawings and then approach contractors to quote for the tender for the building work.

In June 2020 the hall was granted funding by The National Lottery for the pre-developement, electrical plans, detailed building specification and drainage.  

WILDLIFE GARDEN

The site has been planted with a meadow area and what wiull eventually becpme a woodland area. All the species used are native to the Cumbria area. Our thanks to Friends of the Lake District and Cumbria County Council for their generous funding to complete theis stage and Cumbria Wildflowers at Great Orton for teir expert advice and the supply of all our seeds and plants.

Special thanks also to our farming community for the use of their machinery and time to prepare the site, and our community volunteers who over a  two- day period scattered a large quntity of seed and planted about 1100 individual plug plants and bulbs. 

Although it will take 2-3 years to mature properly, there will still be things of interest to see. Our next stage will be to seek funding to provide access to the site and other features to improve the project.

Some new photographs have been added showing how the wildlife area has developed this year, with quite a few different species of flower on show. This has been despite the drought, and the site will develop better over the next couple of years as more of the perennial plants come through. There is a pathway now cut through the area, so please feel free to go and have a look at it. Click here for further details.
