Improvements have been taken place in the Village Hall to primarily help those who have mobility problems or those having hearing loss.
The disabled toilet has been enlarged to create better wheelchair access, with new sanitary ware and mobility assistance to comply with current legal Disability requirements.
Also as part of these improvements new urinals have been installed in the Gent toilets, and a new low level toilet fitted in the ladies. Also new and more effective electric hand dryers have been fitted to all toilets.
Those suffering with hearing loss will also be pleased to know that a new 'Hearing Loop' is installed in the Sewers Hall and the Chatham Room. Those hiring the hall and wishing to use the loop will be able to use either a hand or table top radio microphone.
Additionally new electric 'black out' blinds have been installed in the Chatham Room. This will reduce the room temperature caused by 'solar' gain, and also provide a better environment for meetings and presentations.
Funding for the Disability Improvements and providing the Hearing Loop has been kindly funded by a SSDC (106) grant.
