A campaign has launched to find the remaining £15,000 needed to keep a much-used community hall standing.

Lambeage Hall first opened in 1922 and is the only public green area for outdoor events in Coverack, such as the village summer fete.

It is also the home to many groups and organisations, including the jujitsu and yoga club, as well as events such as the annual horticultural show and regular film nights and theatre productions.

However, over the years the building has suffered damage, causing problems to the foundation, and money is now needed to underpin the hall to keep it standing in years to come.

Almost £11,000 has already been allocated and the Save Lambeage Hall in Coverack appeal now hopes to raise the remainder of the £26,000 estimated project cost.

The fundraising team said: ""We are calling for donations from our community – residents, visitors and businesses – to help us to save Lambeage Hall for future generations.

"As our community thrives and grows, we see a great future for the hall and we need your help to make it happen."

Donations can be made online via the fundraising page crowdfunder.co.uk/save-lambeage-hall-1 or speak to a member of the Lambeage Hall Committee in the village.

The hope is to raise enough money to be able to start work in the autumn.

Once the foundations have been underpinned, the team then hopes to carry out major refurbishments to provide facilities for disabled people, better parking, a refurbished kitchen, toilets and bar, and even a balcony overlooking the sea, in order to encourage even more events to take place there.
