Refurbishing your Community Hall for the 21st Century

For nearly sixty years, St Mary’s Parish Hall has opened its doors to the Merton Park community. It's the local meeting place for organisations and classes, and community and family events – weddings, parties, meetings, quizzes, Summer and Christmas fairs, and the ever popular Parish Players Pantomime

Generations of families have been coming to the Hall over the past sixty years, rightly seeing it as part of their own history.  

Our Hall

The 1964 building is beginning to show its age. Over the last few years, thanks to a very kind legacy, much work has been done to bring our hall up to 21st century standards. The small hall, kitchen, foyer and toilets have all been refurbished.

Now we are turning our attention to the main hall, office and smaller meeting rooms. The planned work aims to reduce our energy use and carbon footprint by: 

  • Replacing single glazed windows and exit doors 
  • Improving thermal insulation    
  • Replacing the original electrics and lighting  
  • Completing the fire detection system 

Much of this work will be invisible to the eye, but will provide a more energy efficient space with good ventilation.

Our Target 

The total cost is around £81,000. An amazing £60,000 has already been raised by the congregation of St Mary’s Church, using generous donations from its members and the rest of the legacy.

But we now need your support to raise the remaining £20,000. 

Every donation will help us create a warm, welcoming community Hall for many years to come. Please help us to reach our target so we can complete the work this year.
