In 2014, Focus successfully helped Mareham le Fen Village Hall Committee to secure £500,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities Buildings Strand to replace a 100-year-old tin and timber hall with a modern, more central facility.
Focus assisted the Management Committee from the initial project concept through to consulting with the community and securing the Big Lottery Fund award. Focus provided a wide range of services from needs analysis, project scoping, architectural services, cost consultancy, support with funding applications, business planning and development of the capital development plan as part of the Big Lottery Fund application. Focus is now retained as the lead consultant delivering the building of the new hall.
It is planned that the new hall will be used seven days a week to host dance and fitness sessions, arts and crafts activities, a luncheon club, social events, and meetings. The new hall will also be a venue for private functions such as weddings and christenings, and will be more central for the village, safer and with access to car parking, and will be wheelchair friendly.
