Help support a new playground and parking at the Village Hall

How you can support

Welcombe Village Hall needs to replace its popular playground and expand its parking provision that is not large enough for the hall size. More details can be found in the adjacent brochure

The Village Hall and Childrens Playgroup have already raised nearly £14,000 towards the £45,000 target. The aim is to raise another £10,000 from donations and the remainder through grants. Named sponsorship of playground equipment is available.
