CENTENARY PROJECTS for CHILWELL MEMORIAL HALL & INSTITUTE

FURTHER ENHANCEMENTS TO THE MEMORIAL HALL

SUGGESTIONS SO FAR:

Level 1

  • Tidy up veranda. Level the floor, power sand, stain and varnish.
  • Replace the green netting with clear “breathable” polycarbonate.
  • Replace or improve steps.
  • Replace rotting wood.
  • Total re-paint.
  • Improve lighting.
  • Clear the snooker room. Replace windows so people can see in and out.
  • Replace door – maybe sliding double with floor to ceiling glass or polycarbonate panes.
  • Redecorate. Carpet or wooden floor.
  • Furnish for use as multi-purpose activity room.
  • The “Centenary Suite” maybe?
  • Commission a Great War memorial art installation for the front of the building gable end.
  • This could be from the local artist who has done the murals in Beeston. Could be along the lines of tye lone infantry man or maybe The Canary Girls or a montage of both?
  • Install large clock at the rear of the building above the veranda– maybe with poppies surrounding it?

Rough estimate: £10K – £15K

Level 2                  As above plus:

  • Install new sloping transparent roof for veranda or renovate existing roof and add solar panels or both?
  • Replace existing partition between the main hall and snooker room with a stud wall (soundproofed). Alternatively, install a modern slidable partition that allows for larger attendances at events such as quizzes, shows etc.
  • To save money maybe the existing partition could be renovated?

Rough estimate:  £25K – 30K

Level 3                  As above plus:

  • Square up building from kitchen to gate. Flat roof or sloping.
  • Redesign interior to include disabled access / toilet(s). Expand “Centenary Suite”.
  • Utilise increased floor space to fit needs.

Rough estimate:    £60K – £100K   maybe more??
