Church and Community Working Together

This project has been made possible by the Church and Community working together to define requirements. The £25, 000 funding has been achieved by the generous grants of £10,000 from The National Lottery – Awards for All, £5,000 from The Church Community Fund and the remainder from monies raised from the Perranuthnoe Open Gardens, Local Fund raising events, Church Reserves, and Generous Private Gifts.

Grand Opening of the Perranuthnoe Church Room

Saturday 29th January 11am

The ribbon will be cut at 11am then expect tea, coffee or a glass of wine, light nibbles and a short presentation followed by time to look around and chat with others about future activities.
The room will remain open until 4pm for any afternoon visitors.

This building is now available for use by any member of the community.
We hope this will be a whole village community event.
Everyone is welcome.

Project Aims
To open up the building for use by the wider community
To make the building accessible to all as far as is reasonably practicable.
To make best use of the space available
What’s New?

The main room is now fully damp-proofed and re-decorated with a new floor, a fitted hearing loop, extra electrical sockets, built-in lockable cupboards and spaces in which to stow the folding-furniture. The kitchen has been extended and now has a new cooker, extractor fan, extra electrical sockets, a stable-door fire-escape and a small serving hatch. We have use of a folding ramp to assist wheel-chair users into the main room and we plan to locate one or two sturdy arm chairs close to the WC entrance. The WC is one large cubicle fitted with a disability alarm, extra grab-rails, toddler seat and baby-changing facilities. Special community noticeboards are being ordered for inside and out to avoid posters blocking the light from the windows. A separate store has been built for bulky, outdoor furniture, freeing up activity space within the building. To hear more about activities, please come along to the Grand Opening!

Room Fees:
£6 per hour
£12.50 half a day
£25 whole day
