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

Bookings are being taken until late November, 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 still a shortfall which 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.

A FINAL THANK YOU

As a chance for people to say goodbye to the old hall, and for us tio say 'thank you' to the village, we are holding two events on SATURDAY NOVEMBER10th:

Afternoon tea to the sound of piano and song from 2.30 - 4.30pm.
Tickets £3 from Mulberry or Sarah on 701069

Agent Utah concert on stage from 7.30 pm for a loud and lively finish
Tickets £5 from Sarah 701069 and other sellers via Spotted in Repton facebook page. Licensed bar.


PROGRESS: PRACTICAL. LEGAL & FINANCIAL

We anticipate going to tender in mid October and hope to have the results for mid November. The foundations will be more complex than anticipated and managing water outflow from the site will be more costly than it would have been in the past, all part of reducing the flood risk for the Trent valley.
The legal work to underpin our use of public funds is just about ready and should not hold up matters.

CLOSURE DATE - this has now been fixed for November 30th so that demolition can start in December. Construction will start in the new year. The first task post closure will be an asbestos survey - taking panels off to make sure the former survey was right.

We aim to reopen in August/ Sept 2019.


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