New facilities for Disabled People.
Tysoe Village Hall goes 21st Century – A Hall for All
Thanks to an award of £10,284 from Warwickshire County Council’s Investment Board. Tysoe Village Hall is pleased to announce that new disabled facilities are now available at the hall.
The monies, made available under the Board’s Community Access for Disabled People: Changing Places and Sensory Areas Fund has enabled the installation of toilet facilities that are suitable for wheelchair users, together with two new double doorways between the main hall and the committee room. In addition to this, the hall is now also fitted with a hearing loop to improve its accessibility for those with hearing difficulties.
Paula Ellis of the All-Age Disability Team at Warwickshire County Council, said “We are really pleased that Warwickshire County Council could support this worthwhile project as part of our commitment to empower communities and ensure that individuals are safe and protected from harm and are able to remain independent for longer. We hope that the changes and building work at Tysoe Village Hall will be of benefit to the community for many years to come.”
Percy Sewell, Chairman, Tysoe Village Hall said “These new facilities are the first stage of major improvements planned at the hall which include new energy efficient heating, lighting and soundproofing, a new stage, stage lighting, tracks and drapes and additional storage. The committee are working hard to ensure that the hall becomes energy efficient, flexible, suitable for disabled people and their carers, and sustainable. We want the hall to meet the needs of the whole community now and into the future whilst remaining a welcoming, accessible and affordable venue.”
