Monxton & Amport Village Hall has served Monxton well over the past half century, and Amport since it joined in 1998, but the Hall is now in much need of an urgent makeover/update in order to be compliant with current regulations.
MAVH is also now up against serious competition, as over the past few years other Community Halls in the area have been built and refurbished and this has resulted in a number of our regular hall users moving to newer and better-equipped halls. Those groups that have recently left MAVH include baby sensory classes, yoga and band practice. Unfortunately, this means that the Hall is not earning sufficient income to maintain overall operating costs. So consequently any future improvements to the Hall will not only have to reduce such costs but must also comply with the Village Design Statement
as the Hall footprint is within the conservation area.
Over the last few months, the Committee has been working very hard to identify funding sources and, with the help of Community Action Hampshire and Test Valley Borough Council, will be applying for suitable grants, as well as carrying out local fundraising.
