With the new Children's Play Area opened in October 2023 the Pakenham Village Hall and Playing Field Association are now looking to replace our ageing pavilion which is adjacent to the new play area  We cant be certain  as to its age but discussing with residents, the pavilion was up to 20 yrs old before being moved to its current location over 30 yrs ago so its served its purpose and ready to be replaced. 

Once we have full costings we can start grant applications at the same time continue our local fund raising which in turn helps when applying for grants. In May 2023 the Village held a Music Festival on the Playing Field and  raised £2,000 for the new Pavilion and £2,000 each for Scotties Little Soldiers  and Macmillan.Cancer Support . One way everybody can help is to use Easyfundraising. It couldn't be simpler and wont cost you a penny. Simply choose your online shop like Tesco , Ebay from the Easyfundraising website or app and your transaction is tracked and your resulting donation is credited to our cause. 

We would like the new Pavilion to be 50% larger by doubling the size of the social area/ kitchen whilst retaining the the 2 changing rooms and toilets with disabled access. The construction would be wood with a pitched roof together with solar panels. We would like to receive your opinion about our plans and possible uses which currently include pop up cafe, children's activities, parties, child care, youth club, warm hub, men's shed, craft clubs, social club, business meetings, catering facilities for sports and social events held on the playing field . Have your say by completing this online questionnaire. By completing the questionnaire you will be assisting with our grant applications which might include match funding opportunities.
