Building Work Commences On Chester Village Hall Project

A £1m project to construct a new village hall to serve five communities near Chester has started, with a projected completion time of June.

The Mollington, Backford & District Village Hall will be rebuilt on the same site as the original hall that was built in 1950, with the help of £640,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund and a range of private donors and other funding sources.

The community hub has seen constant use by people in the Chorlton, Backford, Caughall, Lea-by-Backford and Mollington area, which has over the years led to increased maintenance requirements and the limited space for storage in Chester becoming more of a concern.

Plans for a new village hall were considered as early as 2016, with funding from the National Lottery and Sport England being acquired early in the process.

The new building will feature a main hall and stage for classes, indoor sports and events, as well as an activity room, reception and storage rooms, as well as a kitchen and bar area. A multi-use outdoor games area has also been planned.

Once the new building is completed, the old hall will be demolished to create additional parking spaces.

Work on the new site began on 4th January, as the construction company hired to build the new hall broke ground and commenced work on-site levelling and preparing footings and foundations. The next step after this is the pouring of concrete followed by the erection of steelwork structures.
