A village hall has been rebuilt thanks to several donations and fundraising by residents.

Isham Village Hall had fallen into disrepair and it was decided to demolish it and start again.

The project was awarded £50,000 by Wren, the not-for-profit organisation that awards grants to community projects from money raised by the landfill tax. This donation was from FCC Environment, which donates its landfill tax credits to Wren.

There were also other donations from villagers, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Maud Elkington Charitable Trust, the county council, a previous village charity and The Friends of Isham Village Hall, meaning a total of £200,000 was reached. The project also got free legal assistance from Pro Help through Wilson Browne Solicitors.

It is hoped the building will be ready for villagers to use shortly.
