East Worlington Parish Hall Committee, supported by our community, have been working to plan and raise sufficient funds to make improvements to and conserve our Parish Hall as an important community facility. The on-site work for this activity started in October 2015 and comprised three main phases:
The Second Phase (2017-19) of the 10 Year Conservation and Improvement Plan for the Parish Hall focused on the the stage and kitchen area.
One of the outcomes of the Heritage Project 2015 is to describe the evolution and development of the parish over the centuries. To support this outcome we would like understand better the development of dwellings within the parish, including their type of construction, their use over time (if there has been a change in use), their specific developments, alterations and extensions, any historical information about previous residents, and any artefacts, photographs, etc. that may exist.
In 2018 the Heritage group produced two research documents for the East Worlington Primary School describing challenges they could undertake for for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 education. The stage 1 questions were about the pastimes of children 100 years ago, while the stage 2 questions were based on the history of the two Worlington villages as described in a produced as part of the Heritage Project 2014-2016.
From September 2017 through to August 2018 as part of the Heritage Project Activities we asked a question once a month about the local community.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Report and Evaluation provides commentary and evidence that tells the story of the East Worlington Parish Hall Heritage Project. It aims to explain the difference the project has made to the building and to the community and to express some of the enthusiasm, engagement and commitment of our community.
