Burwash Village Hall



Your support for our fund-raising events is more important than ever this year due to the significant moisture and mould problems around the two beautiful Oriel windows at the front of the Main Hall. Additional problems have been revealed in March and further investigations are being carried out before all the necessary works can be identified. We are planning/hoping for the work to be carried out in August 2020.

The ground-floor Oriel style large timber windows at the front of the main hall are at least 112 years old, the hall having been completed in 1907. The softwood timber then would have been properly seasoned and therefore has lasted very well. Time and weather is taking its toll and sections have rotted and been repaired with new timber scarfed in or two pack epoxy resin repairs undertaken. The secondary glazing was installed approximately 15 years ago to help reduce traffic noise and assist with some heat retention: however the seals to the glazing have deteriorated. This in turn is having an adverse effect on the internal timber.

This plainly affects the urgency and value (now projected as £45,000+) of our project. In the last 10 years we have managed to raise our own funds, with help from Burwash Parish Council and our very loyal village supporters, for all the major works which have been carried out. This time we shall be applying for external funding. We launched our appeal earlier this year and I am delighted to report that we have had a good response so far! I am very grateful to the family of the late Dr Glyn for nominating our fund-raising appeal as the beneficiary following his death: £517.38 has been donated in his memory.

Mary’s Soup Lunch raised a further £474 and our total raised now stands at £14,415. Thank you very much! If you would like to make a donation and help us carry out this vital work, and wish to donate on-line, our bank details are NatWest, sort code: 60-10-30, account number 60863463. Please mark the transfer BVH ‘Windows Appeal’.
