Hall Trustees are pleased to share with the community regular updates on how hall renovation works are progressing.

Renovation Update 6 - September 23

Site Meeting of August 2023 - the hall is really taking shape now and trustees were happy to share progress with the Development Company at an on-site meeting at the end of August.

August saw the following work take place: -

  • Roof sheeting complete
  • Cedral cladding complete
  • Taping and mist coating complete
  • Blockwork complete
  • Fascia and Soffit complete
  • Guttering complete
  • Render complete
  • Lining boards to main hall ongoing

You will have all noticed the new feature, a wonderful village clock which will be accompanyed by a new sign in the future.

Regular site meetings take place with LCT and Hall representatives. Tina Hartley, Community Engagement & Development Officer, continues to work closely with our Treasurer, Bob Moir, to monitor the budget.  Both Tina and Bob are involved in the grant claims process with LCT and the Highland Council.

We are pleased to be able to support our local posties with WC facilities and dedicated parking during renovation works.

Please check out the images below.  We will continue to keep you updated as the contract moves forward.
As ever thanks go out to our funders Lochluichart Community Trust and Scottish Government.

Wonderful that the newly renovated hall will be the start of community regeneration for our area!

I have just driven past the Garve Hall and thought it looked wonderful ( admittedly  the sun was shining....makes a difference everywhere)  .The green space beside served only to enhance the sight  so I thought it would be a shame to build on it. The front of the building beyond looked quite attractive too. I hope it can be put to good use and become an environmental asset - to the world.

Have your say...
