  1. Council backs bid for Crockenhill Village Hall improvements

    Crockenhill residents could see improved access to their village hall following a grant application by the late District Councillor Colin Dibsdall.

    Colin Dibsdall began an application for £3,000 towards a new path, improving access and safety to the hall, but he was unable to complete it before his death in November of last year.

    Sevenoaks District Council’s Cabinet agreed at its meeting on 8 March 2012 to provide the full £3,000 grant towards the project, which is expected to cost more than £4,484. The project will be managed by the Crockenhill Village Hall Management Committee.

    The Village hall is widely used by the local community. The new path will be well lit with dropped curbs allowing much easier disabled and pram access. It will also create a safe through route connecting the village hall with the school road. This new path will make access much safer for residents and reduce the risk of accidents.

    Cllr Pat Bosleythe Councils Cabinet member of Community Grants, says:
    Residents, groups, and local people with ideas for the Big Community Fund can find out how to make an application by getting in touch with their local District Councillor. Their contact detail are available at www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/councillors or by calling 01732 227000.
