HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE FUTURE OF PINVIN MEMORIAL HALL
Residents of Pinvin have an exciting chance to shape the future of the village’s Memorial Hall, which is in line for a potential rebuild following a change of management.
With a new committee at the helm, the Hall is bidding for council funding to replace the current building, which dates back to 1926. Despite efforts from local residents in recent years, the Hall has fallen into disrepair and in need of significant structural work.
Plans for a new Hall include the addition of sports and changing facilities, to benefit the clubs currently using Pinvin’s playing fields. Interest has already been expressed from local rugby and football clubs as well as local providers of indoor exercise classes and children’s clubs. Plans also include brand new catering facilities and extra storage for regular hirers.
“We’re very excited about what this could mean for our village,” commented Amanda Caton, co-Chair of the Memorial Hall Committee. “As a relatively isolated rural community, Pinvin is crying out for a focal point to bring the whole village together, especially once Covid restrictions are over and we can socialise again. We want to create a meeting place for our whole village to enjoy, and give a new home to local clubs, societies and our local Preschool.”
Pinvin residents are asked to provide their views on a new village Hall by completing a short survey, which is available online or in hard copy.
