A COMMUNITY hall has received a boost after a council provided it with some funding for their kitchen.

Priory Park community hall in Locks Heath has received £2,500 from Fareham Borough Council’s community fund to assist with the refurbishment of the hall’s kitchen.

Councillor Sean Woodward, leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: ‘I’m very pleased we have been able to assist Priory Park community hall with funding to refurbish the kitchen.

‘The hall is used by many community groups and the new kitchen will also have an 80cm high top area which will be suitable for wheelchair users, making the kitchen accessible to all.’

The total cost of the kitchen refurbishment is £5,304.

The remaining funds will be met by agreed funding of £1,500 from Cllr Woodward’s Hampshire County Council fund.

The Priory Park Community Hall will raise the remaining £1,304 through its own funds.
