FUND-RAISING APPEAL

Your support for our fund-raising events is more important than ever this year due to the significant moisture and mould problems around the two beautiful Oriel windows at the front of the Main Hall. We are planning for the replacement work to be carried out in August 2020. Competitive quotations have been received and will be reviewed by the Hall Committee. This means that we can move forward in preparing submissions for financial assistance from a number of organisations. Planning and Building Regulations’ applications will be submitted with the assistance of the selected contractor. The decision to select a contractor will be decided upon once a financial review has been completed, together with receipt of references and confirmation of their ability to adhere to the programme.

The ground-floor Oriel-style large timber windows at the front of the main hall are at least 112 years old, the hall having been completed in 1907. The softwood timber would have been properly seasoned and therefore has lasted very well. Time and weather is taking its toll and sections have rotted and been repaired with new timber scarfed in or two pack epoxy resin repairs undertaken. The secondary glazing was installed approximately 15 years ago to help reduce traffic noise and assist with some heat retention: however the seals to the glazing have deteriorated which, in turn, is having an adverse effect on the internal timber. This is expensive, extensive and urgent work. In the last 10 years we have managed to raise our own funds, with help from Burwash Parish Council and our very loyal village supporters, for all the major works which have been carried out. This time we shall also be applying for external funding.

If you would like to make a donation and help us reach our total for this vital work, and wish to donate online, our bank details are NatWest, sort code: 60-10-30, account number 60863463. Please mark the transfer BVH ‘Windows Appeal’.
