December 2007 – Car Park and Access Ramps

Our project was to resurface the gravelled car park and install new ramp access from the car park to the hall entrance. The old car park was uneven, so we tarmaced it and improved the drainage. When we had a lot of rain, it flooded outside the hall and at the bottom of the steps. We installed a new ramp access from our car park, made of concrete, with handrails to ease access to the hall. The old ramp was too steep and no longer met the legal requirements for ramp access. Our aim was to provide facilities of a high standard to keep the hall a safe and well used amenity.

The total cost of the project was £19,705.

This project was achieved with the following generous grants and donations:

  • Mundford Parish Council – £3,500
  • Breckland District Council – £500
  • Awards for All – £8,600
  • Norfolk County Council Capital Grant Aid Scheme – £780

Mundford Recreation Ground and Village Hall Trust contributed the remainder of the funds required – £6,325.
