WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW

We are now applying to major grant giving organisations to help us fund the new building We have been gathering information to create a Business Plan and this contains all the information needed to complete the application forms and convince the Grant providers that this project is needed for the village and will be extensively used..

 

BACKGROUND

EXISTING HUT
The present building  opened in  1990 and  has done sterling service for 29 years   but has reached  the end of its useful life The roof leaks, there are no facilities for the disabled or elderly. There are now many more users and the Hut is no longer big enough or suitable for maby of the groups that use it.

NEW BUILDING

V2 M gale 2

The Hut is going to be replaced with a new building in the very near future. As this new building will be more than just a Scout Hut we have ‘re-branded’ it as

The Barford Youth and Community Centre

Consultations have taken place to establish  the wider needs of the Village.

We have contacted several suppliers and have issued a formal Tender document.

This has enabled us to predict the cost of the project and start the process of applying for grants to help us raise the money needed for the project.

We have already replaced the old garages with a purpose built storage facility and these will also store some of the equipment in the hut when we have to demolish it to create the new building.
