We Still Need your Donations!
We have been successful in our ‘Future Halsway’ bid to restore the Manor – click here for full report – thanks in no small part to the generous donations from our supporters! Visit our Future Halsway project page to keep up to date with progress..
Evan as building work is in progress, we are now planning the next phase of our redevelopment, to build a new kitchen and return the Mardon room and existing kitchen to their former glory. We will need to raise about £140,000 for this to happen so if you can spare any money please get in touch with us or visit our fundraising page. Thank you.
We have a total fundraising target of £250,000 which we need to raise ourselves through donations from our friends and supporters – please donate what you can!
To donate either send us a cheque, call us, or visit our funding campaign page www.totalgiving.co.uk/appeal/halswayrestoration
If you would like any more information or to discuss a donation please contact: Crispian Cook or call 01984 618274 Ex4
We desperately need your help to raise these funds to ensure we can continue to promote folk arts in England and preserve our valuable cultural heritage for future generations.
Please give what you can, it all helps.
The Project – Stage 1
Building work is underway and will be finished by August. The manor will be handsomely clad in scaffolding over this period for which we can only apologise, but should look even more beautiful at the end of the works. We will be closed during July to manage the more obtrusive work involving water and electricity works, but outside of this time disruption will be kept to a minimum. We thank you for your understanding during this period.
This initial stage of work, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, the Country Houses Foundation and over £100k of private donations, allows us to renovate Halsway Manor and ensure it remains available for use by all into the future.
The money will enable us to:
- Repair and conserve the manor’s historic fabric, repair the roof, windows and doors, upgrade dated electrical and water systems.
- Redecorate rooms and facilities.
- Conserve the library collection and make it accessible to more people.
- Install new more environmentally sustainable systems which will save significant future running costs and be much more efficient.
- Upgrade our dated waste water systems and bring them up to the required standard.
