Funding News. Our successful application to the New Homes Fund through Torridge District Council raised a very significant £30K in additional funding and as a result we have been able to push ahead with our plans to complete the most currently visible part of this renovation, the glazing of the undercroft. Our application to the Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund continues to be pushed ahead and we await news of this important funding needed to complete our project. Huge thanks to the Chamber Of Trade who recently donated £1100.00 from the profits from their 'Round The Square' event.
Latest renovation news. As anyone who has recently visited Torrington town centre can see, the Town Hall is starting to look transformed. The undercroft area has been renovated and glazed, the adjacent former Townlands office has had the bay removed and the original arch glazed to match and these two spaces have now been opened up into a single spacious area. A ground floor disabled toilet is now being installed for completion mid-September which will then allow this area to be opened for community events.
Planned open days. We have two important Open Days planned for September 29th and 30th 2017 where we officially open the Town Hall for business. Initially this will be limited to the undercroft area as without the new rear extension we will still be without our catering facility, lift and main toilets, but importantly, this building will start to become a part of our active town centre once again. Friday September 29th will be for invited guests only and will take place between 12.00 noon and 2.00pm. Saturday September 30th will be a Pop-In for all our community and will take place between 10.00am and 2.00pm.
Get Involved. Our committee of hard working volunteers needs to continue to push this project forward to completion and see our Town Hall restored to it's position as THE building at the centre of our community. We need enthusiastic volunteers to join the committee who can spare a little time each month and help this important project reach fruition, so if you think you could spare some time and have got the skills and energy to help us, please send in your details via this website contact page.>
