The YVAA Trustees who run the Village Hall are applied to the Yaxham Parish Charity for a grant. This is part of the refurbishment needed to restore the Village Hall, after 32 years of heavy use, ready for another 32 years of use – and it is a large application by recent standards – £22k which is half the cost of the project for replacing the toilets and upgrading the electrics from single-phase to three phase. Members of the public attended the Charity meeting on 13th February and saw councillors agree, save 1, to make the grant. The YVAA will now apply to Breckland for a grant for 30% of the cost, supported by our Breckland Cllr Paul Claussen. The 20% balance of the cost will come from YVAA’s reserves and fund-raising. A great project for the benefit of the residents of the village, using village funds – and helping to secure the village hall for the next 32 years.
