Welcome to Repton Village Hall, Askew Grove, Repton DE65 6GR.

Bookings are being taken until mid September, then we hope to be closing for redevelopment. Later dates may well be possible. Please contact us if in doubt.

The full story is available on the development page. We are currently finalising funding and technical work on this.

The hall is still usable and has a fine wooden floor. Unfortunately, the walls and structure are at the end of their life.

It has taken since 1999 to get to the point of being able to go ahead with this. We are grateful to the parish council

and residents of Repton and Milton who have supported the rebuilding project, as shown in the referendum in November 2017.


Despite massive local fund raising by our hard working appeals committee,

there is stiall a shortfall whcih will be met via an increase on the precept element of our council tax bills.
The appeal closed recently with a music festival and great celebration.



PROGRESS: PRACTICAL. LEGAL & FINANCIAL

The technical work for rebuilding is underway and the loan from the government to the parish council has been approved.
This is a photo of the survey team drilling down through 3 metres of ground, a precursor to the structural engineering that
has to be done before the architect can complete the drawings. See latest news for some detail on the findings and other issues.


CLOSURE DATE - this has now been fixed for November 30th so that demolition can start in December. Construction will start in the new year
and we aim to reopen in August.






THE FUNDING THERMOMETER



We are in the final stages of pulling together all the sources of funding. We will post details when it is completed

The date for closure for rebuilding is now set. We are going to close on November 30th.
