Access path linking Halwill Parish Hall to the Playing Field.

Halwill Parish Council is engaged in an ambitious program to enhance, expand and extend the facilities and to develop Halwill as a 'sports hub' for the benefit of all the residents of Halwill and surrounding Parishes and Hamlets. As part of the Parish Council's vision for the site, the car-park was extended and resurfaced in May 2012. A widened and extended flight of access steps ('The Jubilee Steps') from the car park directly to the lower level of the hall and the playing field was completed in June 2012 and the Jubilee extension to the Hall to provide a large general-use meeting room for clubs and societies, with facilities for the children's 'Scallywags' pre-school group, was opened in November 2012.

The Parish Council has long recognised the need for a gently sloping wheelchair and push-chair-friendly tarmac path to allow easy movement between the car park level; the picnic area seating; the snooker room—with proposed patio area—and proposed sports changing facilities level; and the children's play area and sports pitch level.

Now, with the help of the Parish Hall Committee—and the fund-raising expertise of the Chair, Pennie Channing—funding for this project is now in place and work will soon begin.

  1. Balsdon Trust provided £5000,

  2. Norman Family Trust £500

  3. Community Council of Devon £6100
