The New Village Centre
Dersingham is a large village of around 5000 population, but it is unusual in never having had a village hall. Yes, there are a several halls in the village but they are either church halls or those owned by a particular organisation. As a result of this situation, in 2014 the Dersingham Parish Council began making plans for a new hall which would provide a venue that would truly meet the comprehensive needs of the village. To reflect the nature of the project it would be titled not just the new village hall, but the Dersingham Village Centre.

The Big Lottery Application is now at Stage Three and we are thrilled that the Parish Council has been awarded a Development Grant, which includes Architects fees for detailed drawings, surveys and other professional fees. However, even with Lottery funding a substantial amount of additional money will need to be raised. There is a dedicated Dersingham Village Centre website which tells you all about the project and gives ways in which you can help with fundraising, so please visit the site and give us your support. There are also fundraising forms in each issue of the Village Voice magazine.
