In rural Southern Lincolnshire, Heydour is extremely isolated and for many residents, particularly the younger and older generations, the Parish Hall is the only accessible source of recreational, leisure and social activities.
With the strong support of local people Focus worked with the Village Hall Management Committee to develop proposals for a new village multi-use hall, a meeting room, storage facilities, kitchen, bar area and changing areas for events and outdoor sports.
Focus helped the community to secure £500,000 from the Big Lottery Fund with match funding from WREN, Lincolnshire County Council and South Kesteven District Council.
