T.M. Browne have now begun the renovation of Dersingham Village Hall. Having won the contract in an open tender situation, the company is now undertaking a major community project that will take around a year to complete.
We have been working closely with the Dersingham Parish Council team during the funding period to value engineer the project, meeting the available budgets from The Big Lottery Fund and other local contributors.
Over the coming months, T.M. Browne will demolish the existing outhouses and a majority of the main building except the front brick and carrstone elevation. We’ll then start on new timber framed two-storey rear and side extensions and a new roof structure (using the existing tiles) – giving the village hall a fresh new look with new zinc rooﬁng and a mix of larch cladding and render. Happily, the adjacent village bowling green will remain live throughout the build period.
Planned in consultation with the Sandringham Estate and English Heritage, the new design is respectful of the surroundings and will be a fabulous centre of village life. Once complete, Dersingham’s new village hall will include an extended hall area with a new kitchen, a new stage and storage area for performances, new toilets with baby change facilities, a relocated Parish oﬃce meeting room, and a break-out hub for meet and greet events.
T.M. Browne is pleased to be helping create a fabulous new village centre for group meetings, community activities, special occasions and private room hire – and we’ll keep you updated on the exciting project’s progress over the coming months.
