Peldon Village Hall
When this happens we expect, once again, to host events and meetings for the use of community groups and private individuals from within the Parish and beyond.
The Bowls Club, Art Group, PAWS & others have used the Hall on a regular basis. It was also the venue for the Peldon May Festival and the Peldon Players stage their pantomime there every January. The Management Committee also runs a number of events during the year, including the ever-popular Quiz Nights. Please refer to the Events Calendar on the home page for further details.
All of these have temporary alternate accommodation until the new build is complete.

Hall Rebuilding Project
The Management Committee has embarked on a project to replace the present hall with a new building, some 50% larger than the present one. Several events that are held in the Hall would benefit from a larger building. Because the Hall was built in the 1960s it does not meet current standards and we expect it to become increasingly expensive to maintain as it ages.
In 2010 & 2011 Colchester Borough Council and Essex County Council awarded the Management Committee grants totalling £30,000 under the Communities Initiative Fund towards the preliminary costs of the project. In order to complete the project we expect to need to raise some £500,000.
The committee appointed architects to assist and plans are now complete and consultation with the village undertaken. Taking that consultation into account we have submitted an application for planning permission for the new building. The designs that have been submitted can be found by following this link.
