An Entrance for AllLeaf Hall logo

DWBL Community Facilities award: £8,000

To create a new entrance to make a safe access that can be used by everyone.

Leaf Hall wants to ensure that it is a community space that is accessible to all. This funding is a contribution to the total project cost, to cover architect fees, surveys and plans to move the scheme forwards.

Message from Gina Leonard: “The Community Grant from Devonshire West Big Local has enabled us to pay for the architects fees needed for our Access For All Project. Together with the support from the Mears Group for labour and Eastbourne Bonfire Society fund raising for materials, it’s truly a huge community effort to bring this beautiful, historic public building up to date. This will enable every member of our community to access our classes, meetings, events and our new cafe”
