Edington Parish Hall Appeal
Target now reached thanks to the generous donation from Chad Pike who has plugged the gap for us. Building work has now started and we will be posting regular picture updates as the work progresses.
Created using the Donation Thermometer plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/donation-thermometer/.£60,000Raised £60,000 towards the £60,000 target.100%
The Parish Hall committee are planning to make improvements and to modernise the amenities and facilities of the Parish Hall in order that they can respond to the growing and developing needs of the wide range of village groups and individuals, both current Hall users and potential users.

The committee have been raising funds, seeking grants and need villagers help to reach the target needed to undertake the improvements. Based on the estimates received, we have a target of £30,000 to provide disabled toilets and extend the kitchen facilities. But in an ideal world we can complete the whole project if we raise £60,000.

Appeal leaflets have now been delivered to houses in the village and we thank those villagers and organisations who have donated (and agreed to gift aid) so far.  Watch the total grow as more people make a donation.

You can now donate online by clicking here.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the appeal, we have now reached our target.

The village contains a superb 14th Century Priory Church and the recently refurbished and renovated “Three Daggers” Public House as well as a number of picturesque houses. It is surrounded by very attractive countryside which offers an excellent variety of footpaths, many of which offer spectacular views from Salisbury Plain. The well-known Edington Music Festival is held annually in the Church., BBC television included a programme on the 50thanniversary of the Music Festival in its series “A Passion for Churches” which was transmitted on BBC2 in April 2006. Edington was the joint winner of the “Village of the Year” competition in 1999.  The judges were particularly impressed with the community spirit as evidenced by the wide range of events and activities. Many of these have continued to the present day; these include The Jazz Festival, The Summer Ball, The Village Fair & Evening Party, and the Flower and Produce Show.
