As a spin-off from the village hall project we also raised £270,000 to build the community rooms on the Galgate Recreation field.
Together with the £500,000 lottery bid we gained other grants and also had £92,000 from the sale of the old Institute.
In the middle of 2011 work then started on building the new hall on the Galgate Recreation Field and the building was completed in March 2012. We had work parties to paint the inside and the hall began to be used in August 2012.
Since then the hall has been a great benefit to our community and our facilities have improved over the following years.
The village hall isn’t just a building, it is also an expression of the community spirit in Galgate village.
